Jane Austen könyvei a rukkolán


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 - 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 - 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 - Love ​and Friendship and other early works
This ​is a collection of short stories, drama, humor, and other works written by Jane Austen at least a decade before her major novels. It is a series of letters and other works that Austen wrote, and they show a free spirited Austen, quite unlike her formula books that came later. As a read this is not what one would call great literature, but it is worthwhile to see a young Jane Austen writing without constraints, and writing as a young woman years before her fame.

Jane Austen - La ​abadía de Northanger
_La ​abadía de Northanger_ narra la historia de Catherine Morland, una joven ingenua aficionada a la lectura de novelas góticas. Invitada por los Tilney a pasar una temporada en su casa de campo, se dedicará a investigar tortuosos e imaginarios secretos de familia. Cuando finalmente todo se aclase y comprenda que la vida no es una novela, la inocente Catherine pondrá los pies en la tierra y encauzará su futuro según dictan las normas morales y sociales de la época. Publicada originalmente en 1818, es la novela más irónica y divertida de Jane Austen.

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.

Jane Austen - The ​Complete Illustrated Novels 1.
Jane ​Austen's ability to engross and fascinate her readers began nearly 200 years ago and continues today. Her sharp wit, piercing observations of human nature and unrivalled somic genius have meant that Austen's novels have never fallen from popular taste and continue to enthral of readers today. This volume, delightfully illustrated with Hugh Thompson's delicate drawings, contains three of Jean Austen's classic novels. PRIDE AND PREJUDICE recounts the well known story of Elizabeth Bennet and her matchmaking mother's quest to find husbands for her five daughters. Charles Bingley and, of course, the handsome Mr Darcy, are suitors. MANSFIELD PARK is where Fanny Price is brought to live with her aunt and uncle, Lady and Sir Bertram. She becomes immersed in their world but in her teens finds she cannot take part in the self-indulgent flirtations of her four cousins. She returns home to visit her family only to find herself longing again for Mansfield Park. PERSUASION, Austen's last novel, tells the story of Sir Walter Elliot and his daughters, in particular the youngest, Anne. She becomes reacquainted with the dashing Captain Wentworth whom she had loved, but rejected, eight years earlier. However, soon after their reacquaintance, the family, unable to maintain the grand residence, move Bath. But what will become of the Captain?

Jane Austen - Selected ​Letters
'Little ​Matters they are to be sure, but highly important.' Letter-writing was something of an addiction for young women of Jane Austen's time and social position, and Austen's letters have a freedom and familiarity that only intimate writing can convey. Wiser than her critics, who were disappointed that her correspondence dwelt on gossip and the minutiae of everyday living, Austen understood the importance of'Little Matters', of the emotional and material details of individual lives shared with friends and family through the medium of the letter. Ironic, acerbic, always entertaining, Jane Austen's letters are a fascinating record not only of her own day-to-day existence, but of the pleasures and frustrations experienced by women of her social class which are so central to her novels. Vivien Jones's selection includes very nearly two-thirds of Austen's surviving correspondence, and her lively introduction and notes set the novelist's most private writings in their wider cultural context.

Jane Austen - Seth Grahame-Smith - Büszkeség ​és balítélet meg a zombik
A ​klasszikus tizenkilencedik század eleji románc - most durván erőszakos zombidúlással Jane Austen Büszkeség és balítélet című regényének átdolgozása. A Bennet-lányok igazi kardforgatók, és Mr. Darcy sem csak egy jó parti, hanem rengeteg élőhalott eltakarítása fűződik a nevéhez. Jól nevelt és kifogástalan modorú hamvas úrinők és fess úriemberek két bál és házassági ajánlat között gyilkolják a zombikat. Hiszen köztudomású, hogy "a zombi, ha agyvelőre tett szert, okvetlenül még több agyvelőt szomjaz."

Jane Austen - Merryn Williams - A ​Watson család története
Jane ​Austen regénytöredékét Merryn Williams az írónő stílusában fejezte be. Hűen követi az eredeti elképzelést, és úgy folytatja a regényt, ahogyan ő annak idején elmondta a nővérének. Austen ismét egy nagyszerű hősnőt állít elénk, akinek el kell döntenie, hogy a szívére hallgat inkább, vagy a kényelmes, előkelő életet választja?

Jane Austen - The ​Penguin Complete Novels of Jane Austen
Sense ​and Sensibility | Pride and Prejudice | Mansfield Park | Emma | Northanger Abbey | Persuasion | Lady Susan Few novelists have conveyed the subtleties and nuances of their own social milieu with the wit and insight of Jane Austen. Through her vivacious and spirited heroines and their circle, she paints vivid portraits of English middle-class life as the eighteenth century came to a close. Each of the novels is a love story and a story about marriage - marriage for love, for financial security, for social status. But they are not mere romances; ironic, comic and wise, they are masterly studies of the society Jane Austen observed. The seven novels in this volume contain some of the most brilliant, dazzling prose in the English language.

Jane Austen - Lady ​Susan (angol)

Composed in the epistolary form that was popular at the time, the novel is a series of letters primarily between Lady Susan, Mrs Vernon, Mrs Vernon's mother (Lady de Courcy), Lady Susan and Mrs Johnson. The central character is remarkable in Austenian terms as she has nearly no redeeming features. A gorgeous, clever and witty woman, Lady Susan uses her talents for thoroughly selfish ends as she scrupulously scours society searching for "appropriate" husbands for herself and for her daughter.

Jane Austen, 1801. január 3. "Az újabb és újabb témákat felvető, majd elejtő szövegekben minduntalan felbukkan egy-egy szellemes, kajánkodó megjegyzés, valamelyik családtagnak, ismerősnek irányzott fricska, vagy akár egy félmondatnyi terjedelmű, remekbe szabott jellemzés, amely mind a világát éles szemmel figyelő, és azt kihegyezett mondatokban ábrázoló író jelenlétéről árulkodik. Jane Austen, a leány, testvér, sógornő vagy szomszéd cselekszik, de Jane Austen, az író az, aki megfigyel és szavakba önt, aki megjegyzéseket fűz ahhoz, amit láttat."
