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 - 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
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 - 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 - 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 - 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 - Adam Rann - Emma and the Werewolves
Beware the howls in the darkness and the light of the full moon. As the ever headstrong Ms. Emma Woodhouse schemes and plots as matchmaker, a dark and deadly terror descends upon Highbury. A series of bestial murders fills the residents with fear as the ever mysterious Mr. Knightley leads a secret life, unknown to all, combating evils not of this Earth. Carnage and destruction reign throughout the land, and though the residents of Highbury try to attend to day-to-day matters as civilly as possible, each cannot help but wonder what lurks in the shadows and if it'll be coming for them next.
Jane Austen - Northanger Abbey (Macmillan Readers)
England - 1802. Catherine Morland visits the city of Bath with Mr and Mrs Allen. She meets the Tilneys and falls in love with Henry Tilney. The Tilneys invite Catherine to their home, Northanger Abbey.
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 - 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 - Ben H. Winters - Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters
Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters expands the original text of the beloved Jane Austen novel with all-new scenes of giant lobsters, rampaging octopi, two-headed sea serpents, and other biological monstrosities. As our story opens, the Dashwood sisters are evicted from their childhood home and sent to live on a mysterious island full of savage creatures and dark secrets. While sensible Elinor falls in love with Edward Ferrars, her romantic sister Marianne is courted by both the handsome Willoughby and the hideous man-monster Colonel Brandon. Can the Dashwood sisters triumph over meddlesome matriarchs and unscrupulous rogues to find true love? Or will they fall prey to the tentacles that are forever snapping at their heels? This masterful portrait of Regency England blends Jane Austen’s biting social commentary with ultraviolent depictions of sea monsters biting. It’s survival of the fittest - and only the swiftest swimmers will find true love!

Jane Austen - Lesley Castle
This inspired novella, with its outrageous cast of superficial characters, brilliantly showcases Jane Austen's comic genius. Presented here with A History of England and Catharine. As Miss Margaret Lesley and Miss Charlotte Lutterell divulge their innermost secrets through a series of letters, each reveals where her true priorities lie—if a bridegroom is fatally wounded the night before his wedding, the first concern must inexorably be for the luxurious food that will be laid to waste. As one plot gives way to the next, and as the heroines exchange wisdom on adultery, elopement, divorce, and remarriage, they increasingly fall prey to the merciless and lambasting sword of Jane Austen’s wit. Author of the masterpieces Pride and Prejudice and Emma, Jane Austen is one of the world’s best-loved novelists.
Jane Austen - Vera Nazarian - Northanger Abbey and Angels and Dragons
From the author of Mansfield Park and Mummies... NORTHANGER ABBEY AND ANGELS AND DRAGONS Dragons in the skies of Regency England!

Young and naive Catherine Morland is constantly surrounded by angels only she alone can see. Leaving her country home for the first time, to embark on a grand adventure that begins in fashionable Bath, our romantic heroine must not only decrypt the mystery of the Udolpho Code but win her true love Henry Tilney. Meanwhile she is beset by all the Gothic horrors known to Impressionable Young Ladies -- odious demons, Regency balls, elusive ghosts, pleasure excursions, temperature-changing nephilim, secret clues, ogre suitors, and a terrifying ancient Dragon who has very likely hidden a secret treasure hoard somewhere in the depths of Northanger Abbey.
