Janeausten1
Jane Austen (vissuta poco più di quarant'anni tra la fine del Settecento e l'inizio dell'Ottocento) compì la sua educazione quasi interamente in casa, sotto la guida del padre ecclesiastico. Il suo primo romanzo completo, pubblicato solo nel 1818, è L'abbazia di Northanger. Tra le opere della scrittrice vanno ricordate: Senso e sensibilità (1811), Orgoglio e pregiudizio (1813), Emma (1816) e Persuasione (pubblicato postumo).

    • OXFORD WORLD CLASSICS, 2008
    • Libreria: Kalamos Books (Canada)
    • Note Bibliografiche: Northanger Abbey is both a perfectly aimed literary parody and a withering satire of the commercial aspects of marriage among the English gentry at the turn of the nineteenth century. But most of all, it is the story of the initiation into life of its naïve but sweetly appealing heroine, Catherine Morland, a willing victim of the contemporary craze for Gothic literature who is determined to see herself as the heroine of a dark and thrilling romance. continua a leggere
    • ARCTURUS, 2009
    • Libreria: Kalamos Books (Canada)
    • Note Bibliografiche: Jane Austen wrote some of the most remarkable romantic novels in English, and Emma is said to be written at the height of her powers. Like all her novels (Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility), the narrative is simple, straightforward and the story develops through seemingly commonplace conversations and events. Emma is twenty one year old daughter to rich Mr Woodhouse, "full of trivial communications and harmless gossip." The story captures how Emma comes to terms with her own errors of judgement, and how she discovers her liking and love for one of the chief characters of the novel. continua a leggere

    • ARCTURUS, 2009
    • Libreria: Kalamos Books (Canada)
    • Note Bibliografiche: As is often the case with Ms. Austen's fiction, "Persuasion" deals with the social issues of the times and paints a fascinating portrait of Regency England, especially when dealing with the class system. Rigid social barriers existed - and everyone wanted to marry "up" to a higher station - and, of course, into wealth. This is also a very poignant and passionate story of love, disappointment, loss and redemption. The point Austen makes here, is that one should not ever be persuaded to abandon core values and beliefs, especially for ignoble goals. There are consequences, always. continua a leggere

But Madeleine Hanna, dutiful English major, is writing her senior thesis on Jane Austen and George Eliot, purveyors of the marriage plot that lies at the heart of the greatest English novels.
