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. In this place, she will live a life of leisure and refinement in which the innocent games will feed seductive plans and strategies. This new world hides a dangerous truth in which only Fanny is capable to discern its consequences and threats. Mansfield Park is probably the most complex of Austen’s works, described as a lavish narrative with psychological depth.
Northanger Abbey – en inglés (9789878304274)
This novel is an ironic and fun portrayal about English society of the period. Young woman Catherine Moreland is and ordinary girl; she is not expected to be a novelistic hero because of her unique spirit and her low social condition, however, novels are her biggest soft spot. Reality will provide her with an absurd and painful world, even worse than she had imagined.
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.
Love and Friendship – Lesley´s Castle – Sanditon – en inglés (9789878354699)
Love and friendship
It is a complete selection of short novels and stories by Jane Austen that she wrote when she was very young and in which we will find everything that will eventually constitute the adult universe of our author: irony, wit, construction, satire of the romantic and ruthless comments social. But also a strange talent and a predilection for an unusual type of heroin – capable of getting drunk, stealing, murdering, etc. – Aspects that we will not find again in his work, but if his inventiveness without restrictions and a taste applied brilliantly to an irresistible comedy.
A short and epistolary novel, in which through the exchange of letters between Margarite Lesley, Charlotte Luterrell and Mrs. Marlowe, we learn about the love affairs of these three women and various members of their social circle. The letters are very funny, in some cases surprising because of the harshness with which these “supposed friends” sometimes speak.
A fragment of eleven chapters left unfinished by the death of Jane Austen, it is a charming story that complements Austen’s novels about the privileged classes of England and the deception, snobbery and unexpected romances that occur in her world. When Charlotte Heywood accepts an invitation to visit Sanditon’s new modern spa, she is introduced to a wide range of polite local society. A heroine whose lucid sense of comment is often at war with romance, Charlotte can’t help but observe both madness and passion around her in many ways. But can sane Charlotte herself resist the desires of the heart?
