"Northanger Abbey" and "Persuasion" were first published together in 1818, the year after Jane Austen's death. "Northanger Abbey", which combines literary burlesque with a slender but characteristic main plot, contains some of Jane Austen's lightest comedy. "Persuasion", her last completed novel, has been a favorite with many readers, partly because of its heroine Anne Elliott, whom Jane Austen described in a letter as "almost too good for me", and partly because of its vivid evocation of people and places. -- From publisher's description.

The thing people don’t realize about my Jane is that she’s rational; indeed, she has that classic excess of rationality: never married. I hate to dump on the French, but she’s not like Colette ... Lue koko arvostelu

Tietoja kirjailijasta (1971)

Jane Austen's life is striking for the contrast between the great works she wrote in secret and the outward appearance of being quite dull and ordinary. Austen was born in the small English town of Steventon in Hampshire, and educated at home by her clergyman father. She was deeply devoted to her family. For a short time, the Austens lived in the resort city of Bath, but when her father died, they returned to Steventon, where Austen lived until her death at the age of 41. Austen was drawn to literature early, she began writing novels that satirized both the writers and the manners of the 1790's. Her sharp sense of humor and keen eye for the ridiculous in human behavior gave her works lasting appeal. She is at her best in such books as Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814), and Emma (1816), in which she examines and often ridicules the behavior of small groups of middle-class characters. Austen relies heavily on conversations among her characters to reveal their personalities, and at times her novels read almost like plays. Several of them have, in fact, been made into films. She is considered to be one of the most beloved British authors.
