Jan 26,  · Jane Austen's Juvenilia (Audio Book) by Jane Austen () Before becoming the author of such classics as Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, and Emma, Jane Austen experimented with. Jun 17,  · Lady Susan is a strong woman at a time when women were very much second class citizens and I couldn't help cheering her on to her own triumph at the end, while deprecating her cruelty to her daughter, Frederica. Highly recommended for fans of Austen's works and I highly recommend the film with Kate Beckinsale too!Reviews:

Jane Austen demonstrated her mastery of the epistolary novel genre in Lady Susan, which she wrote in but never published. Although the primary focus of this short novel is the selfish behavior of Lady Susan as she engages in affairs and searches for suitable husbands for herself and her young daughter, the actual action shares its importance with Austen’s manipulation of her characters. Sep 13,  · Jane Austen’s epistolary novel Lady Susan has never received much attention in comparison to her other six major novels. It is a short piece, only 70 pages in my edition of The Oxford Illustrated Jane Austen: Minor Works containing forty-one letters and a conclusion. Scholars estimate that it was written between when the young.
