Jane Austen - A ​mansfieldi kastély
A ​Ward nővérek sorsforduló előtt állnak: Maria, Sir Thomas Bertram felesége és a mansfieldi kastély úrnője; nővére a helybeli lelkész neje; a legfiatalabb, Frances, egy nagytermészetű, de kis jövedelmű tengerésztiszt feleségeként kilenc gyermek anyja. Legnagyobb leányát, Fanny Price-t az a szerencse éri, hogy a mansfieldi kastély fényűző környezetében „szegény rokonként" nevelkedhet. Hogyan lesz a szépséges lányból sok-sok könnyes éjszaka után egy csélcsap úriember szerelme, s vajon sikerül-e annyi megpróbáltatás után végre révbe érnie? Egy újabb éles eszű Austen-hősnő, akit nem felejtünk el egykönnyen.

Jane Austen - Értelem ​és érzelem
„Könyörgöm, ​könyörgöm, szedd össze magadat, és ne áruld el minden jelenlévőnek, hogy mit érzel!” – szól a józan gondolkodású, higgadt Elinor szenvedélyesen romantikus, impulzív húgára, Marianne-re, akit szerelmi csalódása halálos kétségbeesésbe kerget. A 18.-19. század fordulóján a pénz s az önérdek uralkodik Angliában. A két Dashwood nővérnek, akiknek se vagyona, se rangja, keményen meg kell küzdenie az előítéletekkel és a gazdagság előjogával, hogy elnyerjék a férfit, akire szívük igaz szerelmével vágyódnak. A mások iránt megértő, végtelenül tisztességes Elinor fegyvertelen az olyan szerencsevadászokkal szemben, mint vetélytársnője, Lucy Steele, s Marianne, aki megingathatatlanul hiszi, hogy érzelmei hűek a valósághoz, egy gátlástalan férfi hálójába keveredik. Jane Austen hősnőinek története szerelemről, csalódásról, becsületről, álnokságról, s természetesen reményről és boldogságról mesél, s közben lenyűgöző és gyakran kaján képet fest a világról, amelyben a hölgyek legfőbb foglalatossága a férjvadászat. A regény végén Elinor és Marianne természetesen révbe ér, a szívek meggyógyulnak, s az élet megy tovább - ám addig a szerző szórakoztató események és figurák végtelen sorát vonultatja fel, s szerez velük az olvasónak felejthetetlen élményt.

Jane Austen - Büszkeség ​és balítélet
Csodálatos ​lények lehettek a régi angol papkisasszonyok - egy kis faluban elásva, vénlányságra és tüdőbajra kárhoztatva hervadhatatlan regényeket tudtak írni az emberi természetről és szenvedélyekről. Jane Austen is vidéki papleány volt, mint a Brontë nővérek. Hat teljes regény maradt utána és néhány töredék. Ennek a viszonylag kis életműnek legismertebb és sok kritikus szerint a legjelentősebb darabja a Büszkeség és balítélet. Mint Austen többi regényét, ezt is feszes szerkezete, klasszikus stílusa, szellemes dialógusai, pompás pszichológiája és nem utolsósorban írónőjének csillogó okossága teszik ma is élvezetes olvasmánnyá.

Jane Austen - Pride and Prejudice
'It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. The opening of Jane Austen's ever-popular novel sets the tone of her sparkling comedy of manners and morals. There are five daughters in the Bennet family and marriage is the only carreer open to them. There is naturally much excitement when two young men of good fortune move into the district. But before there can be a happy ending, the hero must conquer his overwhelming pride and Elizabeth, the spirited heroine, her prejudices against him. Only by taking the route to self-knowledge can they reach a mature understanding of each other and find lasting contentment.

Jane Austen - Szerelem ​és barátság és más korai művek
Jane ​Austen korai műveinek e kötete vidám és nélkülözhetetlen olvasmány, amely nem hiányozhat azok könyvespolcáról, akik szeretik a halhatatlan írónőt és írásait. Ezek az írások többnyire zabolátlanok, gyakran túláradóan vidámak, s tréfát űznek az általánosan elfogadott irodalmi és társadalmi szabályokból. A gyűjtemény egyesíti magában a túláradó ifjonti életerőt, valamint a szerző kései műveinek éleselméjűségét és lesújtó társadalomkritikáját, ezáltal nem csupán az érett írói látásmód csodálatos bizonyítéka, hanem az emberi ostobaság egyik legszellemesebb karikatúrája is az angol nyelvű irodalomban. A címadó Szerelem és barátság az érzelmes regény vidám paródiája, melyet az egyre-másra előforduló tréfás, túlzó kijelentések tesznek szórakoztatóvá, A Lesley kastély című rendkívül mulattató, rövid írásban két-három regényre is elegendő bonyodalom akad, az Anglia történetében az írónő csúfot űz az iskolai történelemkönyvekből, míg A három nővér, a széptevés és haszonlesés e csúfondáros története akár a Büszkeség és balítélet mulatságos előfutára is lehet.

Jane Austen - Persuasion ​(Black Cat Reading & Training)
In ​1806, Captain Frederick Wentworth and Miss Anne Elliot fell in love, but since neither of them had any money, Anne’s friend Lady Russell persuaded Anne not to marry the Captain. Eight years later, Anne and Frederick meet again. By this time Frederick has made a fortune in the Navy, but he is still angry with Anne for rejecting him. This – the last of Jane Austen’s novels – is also the most delicate and moving love story she ever wrote. Step 5, Level B2.2

Jane Austen - The ​Wit and Wisdom of Jane Austen
A ​Treasure Trove of 175 Quips—Both Witty and Wise—from Beloved Writer Jane Austen! “Wisdom is better than wit, and in the long run will certainly have the laugh on her side.”—Jane Austen to Fanny Austen, 1814 No wiser or wittier words have been spoken than by one of the world’s most celebrated writers, Jane Austen.

Jane Austen - The ​Complete Novels of Jane Austen
Jane ​Austen is without question, one of England's most enduring and skilled novelists. With her wit, social precision, and unerring ability to create some of literature's most charismatic and believable heroines, she mesmerises her readers as much today as when her novels were first published. Whether it is her sharp, ironic gaze at the Gothic genre invoked by the adventures of Catherine Morland in _Northanger Abbey;_ the diffident and much put-upon Fanny Price struggling to cope with her emotions in _Mansfield Park;_ her delightfully paced comedy of manners and the machinations of the sisters Elinor and Marianne in _Sense and Sensibility;_ the quiet strength of Anne Elliot in _Persuasion_ succeeding in a world designed to subjugate her very existence; and _Emma_ - 'a heroine whom no one but myself will like' teased Austen - yet another irresistible character on fire with imagination and foresight. Indeed not unlike her renowned creator. Jane Austen is as sure-footed in her steps through society's whirlpools of convention and prosaic mores as she is in her sometimes restrained but ever precise and enduring prose.

Jane Austen - Pride ​and Prejudice (Penguin Readers)
Mrs. ​Bennet wants all her daughters to marry. When a rich young man comes to the village, Mrs. Bennet thinks he will make a wonderful husband. Does her daughter Elizabeth love this man? What about her other daughters?

Jane Austen - Sanditon ​and Other Stories
Readers ​of Jane Austens six great novels are left hungering for more, and more there is: the marvelous unpublished manuscripts she left behind, collected here. Sanditon might have been Austens greatest novel had she lived to finish it. Its subject matter astonishes: here is Austen observing the birth pangs of the culture of commerce, as her country-bred heroine, a foolish baronet, a family of hypochondriacs, and a mysterious West Indian heiress collide against the background hum of real-estate development at a seaside resort. The Watsons, begun in 1804 but never completed, tells the story of a young woman who was raised by a rich aunt and who finds herself shipped back to the comparative poverty and social clumsiness of her own family. The novella Lady Susan is a miniature masterpiece, featuring Austens only villainous protagonist. Lady Susans subtle, single-minded, and ruthless pursuit of power makes the reader regret that Austen never again wrote a novel with a scheming widow for its heroine. The special joy of this collection lies in Austens juvenilia–tiny novels, the enchantingly funny Love and Freindship, comic fragments, and a (very) partial history of England–romping miniatures that she wrote in her teens. Their high spirits, hilarity, and control offer delicious proof that Austen was an artist “born, not made.”

Jane Austen - Orgoglio ​e pregiudizio
Elizabeth ​Bennet non è come le altre ragazze, preoccupate solo di fare "un buon matrimonio". Intelligente, spiritosa, con la battuta pronta, Lizzy non desidera passare la vita tra un ballo e un tè delle cinque. Ha un sogno che non osa confessare neppure a se stessa: l'amore. E, a sorpresa, l'amore arriva con le sembianze di Mr Darcy, miglior amico del nuovo vicino di casa, ricco quanto misterioso, burbero ma affascinante. Incontrarsi, riconoscersi, capirsi non è facile neanche per due cuori che palpitano all'unisono. La differenza di classe sociale, i pregiudizi della gente, l'orgogliosa ostinazione dei loro caratteri... tutto cospira per tenerli lontani.

Jane Austen - Orgueil ​et préjugés
Orgueil ​et préjugés (1813) est le roman le plus populaire de Jane Austen. L'histoire en est simple : Elizabeth Bennet, qui se croit dédaignée par Darcy, jeune homme riche et hautain, s'amourache d'un bel officier, Wickham. Au roman sentimental et de coup de foudre, Jane Austen substitue celui qui décrit l'évolution d'une psychologie plus complexe, où se mêlent la raison, le sentiment de gratitude, la méfiance à l'égard des " premières impressions ". L'abondance des menus événements, qui passionnent autant que de grandes aventures, fait l'un des charmes du roman britannique. Elle se combine avec la finesse d'une analyse entièrement intégrée à la description du comportement, et avec un humour discret, mais toujours présent.

Jane Austen - Catharine ​and Other Writings
Jane ​Austen began writing in her early teens, and filled three notebooks with her fiction. Her earliest work reflects her interest in the novel as a genre; in brilliant short pieces she plays with plots, stock characters, diction, and style, developing a sense of form at a remarkably early age. The characters of these stories have a jaunty and never-failing devotion to themselves. They perpetually lie, cheat, steal - and occasionally commit murder. Throughout these short or unfinished pieces, Austen exhibits her sense of the preposterous in life and fiction with tough-mindedness and robust humour. Alice, the mock-heroine of Jack and Alice has `many rare and charming qualities, but Sobriety is not one of them'. In her later published fiction, Austen had learned to take demands for propriety seriously, reining in whatever might be thought boisterous or coarse. Here we see Jane Austen without her inhibitions. In addition to prose fiction and prayers, this collection also contains many of Jane Austen's poems, written to amuse or console friends, and rarely reprinted. The texts have been compared with the manuscripts and edited to give a number of new readings. The notes recreate the texture of daily life in Jane Austen's age, and demonstrate her knowledge of the fiction of her time. The introduction by Margaret Anne Doody sets the writings within the context of Jane Austen's life and literary career.
