Jane Austen könyvei a rukkolán


Jane Austen - Emma ​(angol)
Jane ​Austen teased readers with the idea of a 'heroine whom no one but myself will much like', but Emma is irresistible. 'Handsome, clever, and rich', Emma is also an 'imaginist', 'on fire with speculation and foresight'. She sees the signs of romance all around her, but thinks she will never be married. Her matchmaking maps out relationships that Jane Austen ironically tweaks into a clearer perspective. Judgement and imagination are matched in games the reader too can enjoy, and the end is a triumph of understanding.

Jane Austen - Büszkeség ​és balítélet
Szerelmek ​és félreértések klasszikus meséje a XVIII. századvégi Angliából. Az öt Bennet nővér élete a férjkeresés jegyében zajlik: anyjuk megszállottan próbálja biztosítani számukra a megnyugtató jövőt valami pénzes – és lehetőleg rangos – férfiú mellett. Csakhogy a jó eszű és éles nyelvű Elizabeth szélesebb perspektívákban gondolkozik, és ebben apja is támogatja őt. Amikor Mr. Bingley, a módos agglegény beköltözik az egyik szomszédos birtokra, felbolydul a Bennet-ház élete. A férfi előkelő londoni barátai és a vidékre vezényelt nyalka, ifjú katonatisztek közt bizonyára számos udvarlója akad majd a lányoknak. A legidősebb lány, a derűs és gyönyörű Jane úgy tűnik, meghódítja Mr. Bingley szívét. Ami Lizzie-t illeti, ő megismerkedik a jóképű, és látszólag igencsak dölyfös Mr. Darcyval, és máris kezdődik a nemek ádáz csatája. A helyzetet tovább bonyolítja, hogy Elizabeth nem várt házassági ajánlatot kap a Bennet-vagyont öröklő unokatestvértől, és amikor Mr. Bingely váratlanul Londonba távozik, magára hagyva a kétségbeesett Jane-t, Lizzie Mr. Darcyt teszi felelőssé a szakításért. Ám egy Lydiával kapcsolatos családi válsághelyzet hamarosan ráébreszti hősnőnket arra, hogy mindvégig balul ítélte meg ezt a büszke férfit... Eredeti hangú, máig modern, magával ragadó történet, melyben magunkra ismerhetünk.

Jane Austen - Értelem ​és érzelem
A ​romantikus történet középpontjában a két Dashwood nővér, Elinor és Marianne áll, a regény címe kettejük ellentétes természetére utal. Az értelmet Elinor testesíti meg, tetteit a józan ész és a megfontolás irányítja, mindent logikusan végiggondol, mielőtt határoz vagy cselekszik. Vele szemben áll húga, ő gyakorta esik a romantikus szerelem és szenvedély túlzásaiba, érzelmi válságaitól és csalódásaitól pedig mélyen és látványosan szenved. Austen a két lány sorsát és szerelmük alakulását mutatja be az 1800-as évek Angliájában. Mindketten a boldog házasságot és az igaz szerelmet keresik – de vajon megtalálják-e? Elinor választottja Edward Ferrars, akit azonban ígérete máshoz köt, Marianne szívéért pedig két férfi is verseng: Mr. Willoughby és Brandon ezredes. Mellettük számos tipikus austeni karakterrel ismerkedhetünk meg, ilyen például Mrs. Jennings személye, akinek „nem volt több gyermeke két leányán kívül, kiket kitűnően adott férjhez, így hát más dolga nem lévén, most már az emberiség fennmaradó részét akarta megházasítani.” Jane Austen hősnőinek története szerelemről, csalódásról, becsületről, álnokságról, és természetesen reményről és boldogságról mesél, miközben lenyűgöző és gyakran kaján képet fest az akkori világról, amelyben a hölgyek legfőbb foglalatossága a férjvadászat. Az írónő jellegzetes, finom iróniával fűszerezett stílusa, kiválóan kidolgozott karakterei, a fordulatokban gazdag események és a sziporkázó párbeszédek garantáltan kellemes kikapcsolódást ígérnek az Olvasónak.

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 - Meggyőző érvek
Jane Austen legérettebbnek és legjobbnak tartott régénye. Anne Elliot a könyv hősnője már nem fiatal, vénlányosorsába beletörődött, nyolc év után véletlenül találkozik egykori vőlegényével, az immár meggazdagodott tengerésztiszttel.

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 - Juliette Shapiro - Sanditon
Had ​Jane Austen lived to complete Sanditon, it would have been as treasured as her other novels. In the half-finished masterpiece, Austen fashions one of her classic heroines—Charlotte Heywood. The surviving fragment also sets the story well on its path as Charlotte begins an adventure to Sanditon where a full cast of characters becomes intertwined in various intrigues. At first, Charlotte finds amusement enough standing at her ample Venetian window looking over the placid seafront. However, before long, Charlotte discovers that scandals abound. She becomes captivated by the romance of the seaside lifestyle. But is the town of Sanditon truly a haven and will Charlotte find happiness there?

Seth Grahame-Smith - Jane Austen - Tony Lee - Pride ​and Prejudice and Zombies: The Graphic Novel
THE ​NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER—NOW AN EYE-POPPING GRAPHIC NOVEL OF MANNERS, MORALS, AND BRAIN-EATING MAYHEM It is known as “the strange plague,” and its unfortunate victims are referred to only as “unmentionables” or “dreadfuls.” All over England, the dead are rising again, and now even the daughters of Britain’s best families must devote their lives to mastering the deadly arts. Elizabeth Bennet is a fearsome warrior whose ability with a sword is matched only by her quick wit and even sharper tongue. But she faces her most formidable foe yet in the haughty, conceited, and somehow strangely attractive Mr. Darcy. As the two lovers meet in the ballroom and on the battlefield, they’ll soon learn that nothing—not even bands of ninjas, hordes of flesh-eating zombies, or disapproving aunts—can stop true love.

Jane Austen - Love ​and Freindship
Jane ​Austen is remembered for her six masterpieces of the Regency era: from the heroines of Elizabeth Bennett and Emma Woodhouse to the villains of Mrs. Norris and John Willoughby. But these characters were not born overnight. They sprung from Austen’s experiences as a young girl, and many versions of them can be found in the earliest of her writing: her Juvenilia. In the ‘History of England’, Austen discusses the great kings of England; in ‘Lady Susan’ (also published in Collins Classics Sanditon), she creates an anti-heroine who cheats her way through high society; and in ‘Love and Freindship’, a woman looks back on her extremely unfortunate life. Writing on the cusp of literary greatness, Love and Freindship offers a fascinating – and often surprising – insight into a young Jane Austen.

Jane Austen - Persuasion ​(Penguin Readers)

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 - Catharine
Jane ​Austen irodalmi hagyatékában jó néhány, a későbbi zsenialitást megcsillantó gyöngyszem maradt. E mulatságos, rövid írások is híven tükrözik, hogy írójuk élénken érdeklődött a regény műfaja iránt: kifigurázta a cselekményt, a szokványos jellemeket, a stílust és a nyelvezetet. A szereplők könnyedek, jókedvűek, szemtelenek és odaadóan rajonganak tulajdon személyükért. A címadó _Catharine, avagy a lugas_ Jane Austen íróvá érésének meghatározó mérföldköve, és igényes kísérlet a komoly nagyregény megírására. A _Frederic és Elfrida_ igazából a hagyományos regényműfaj és a bonyolult illemszabályok "gyorstalpaló" tanfolyama. A _Jack és Alice_ egy iszákos, az _Evelyn_ egy harácsoló hőst mutat be, a _Henry és Eliza_ pedig a feje tetejére állítja a megszokott regényhős történetét. _A szépséges Cassandra_ a szentimentális regény paródiája, míg az _Amelia Webster_ című levélregény huncut karikatúrája a leánytestvérek közötti versengésnek. Austen e történeteken, és a kötetben szereplő további rövid írásokon keresztül mutatja be, miként vélekedik a nevetségességről az életben és a regényekben - s mindezt rendkívül szórakoztatóan teszi.

Jane Austen - Gefühl ​und Vernunft
Jane ​Austen war keine 20 Jahre alt, als ihr mit ›Gefühl und Vernunft‹ ein Geniestreich gelang – ein Roman, der die Leser nie mehr zur Ruhe kommen lässt. Und die Anziehungskraft ihrer Charaktere ist bis heute ungebrochen. Elinor und Marianne sind so gegensätzlich wie Schwestern es nur sein können: Während Marianne ihr Herz auf der Zunge trägt, macht die vernünftige Elinor innere Konflikte mit sich alleine aus und scheint kühl, wenngleich es in ihr brodelt. Nach dem Tod ihres Vaters mittellos geworden, müssen sich die beiden ihren Weg durch eine Gesellschaft bahnen, in der vor lauter Pflichten kaum Platz für wahre Sehnsüchte bleibt. Der Wunsch nach einer ehrlichen Liebe treibt sie dabei immer wieder auf Irrpfade … Melodisch und sprachlich präzise nimmt die Neuübersetzung der spannenden Liebesodyssee jeden Staub und schafft mühelos den Spagat zwischen den Jahrhunderten.

Jane Austen - Lady ​Susan
Jane ​Austen e viszonylag ismeretlen regényének hősnője, a fiatalon megözvegyült, kacér és agyafúrt Lady Susan, látszólag kedvére játszik a férfiszívekkel. E képességére nagy szüksége van, mert nem csupán ő akar férjhez menni, de elhanyagolt, félénk és szégyenlős lányát is mielőbb a házasság révébe szeretné juttatni. Fondorlat követ tehát fondorlatot, s már-már úgy tűnik, sikerül mindenkinek port hintenie a szemébe, amikor az egyik elbolondított férfi féltékeny felesége megjelenik a színen... Jane Austen, a Büszkeség és balítélet szerzője, pontosan és érzékletesen ábrázolja kora úri társaságát, valamint e társaság tagjainak hol nyílt, hol álszent és leplezett praktikáit. Emellett a női lélek rejtelmeibe is elsőrendű bepillantást enged. Műve máig friss és lebilincselő olvasmány.

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 - Persuasion
At ​twenty-seven, Anne Elliot is no longer young and has few romantic prospects. Eight years earlier, she had been persuaded by her friend Lady Russell to break off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth, a handsome naval captain with neither fortune nor rank. What happens when they encounter each other again is movingly told in Jane Austen's last completed novel. Set in the fashionable societies of Lyme Regis and Bath, "Persuasion" is a brilliant satire of vanity and pretension, but, above all, it is a love story tinged with the heartache of missed opportunities.
