Lady Susan – The Watsons – en Inglés (9789878304236)
LADY SUSAN & THE WATSON LADY SUSAN This epistolary novel, written by Austen in 1794, narrates the main character´s, the recently widowed Lady Susan, plans to find her and her young daughter a new husband. Austen uses this genre to build a work where the different letters are set like pieces of a puzzle until it completes before the eye of the reader. This novel subverts every norm of the romantic genre: Lady Susan has a leading role, she is not only beautiful but also smart and clever, and all her suitors are significantly younger than her. THE WATSON When Emma Watson attends her first ball, her beauty and naivety will make all eyes focus on her. Is that what happiness is for a young girl in Victorian England? Austen makes this novel a place for her to talk about the condition of women and their limited role, as well as the lack of their own resources, in this period´s society.
La Abadía de Northanger (9789874715159)
Irónico y divertido retrato de la sociedad inglesa de la época. Catherine Morland es una muchacha “tan corriente como la que más”: ni por su espíritu ni por su condición social está llamada a ser una heroína novelesca… y, sin embargo, las novelas son su debilidad. La realidad le revelará al fin un mundo acaso más absurdo y angustioso que el imaginado por la peor de sus fantasías.

After Mr. Dashwood’s death, his wife and three daughters: Elinor, Marianne, and young Margaret, find themselves forced to abandon their possessions in Norland as a result of Mr. Dashwood’s first son inheriting the whole fortune. Relatives from Barton Cottage offer to lodge them in a house which is much more modest than they have ever known. Elinor and Marianne will discover love, but also the pain that results from not being loved back. Marianne romantically falls into disenchantment and despair while Elinor follows reason’s ruling and keeps admirable composure of herself at confronting her feelings. Jane Austen, besides criticizing society’s hypocrisy and women’s marginalization, provides Elinor and Marianne with wisdom, sensibility and fascination making the novel a classic in universal literature.

Emma – en inglés (9789878304229)

Mansfield Park – en inglés (9789878304250)
Fanny Price is just a child when her aunt and uncle take her to live with them at their mansion in Mansfield Park, rescuing her from a life full of hardship.
