Featuring six novels by Jane Austen...
In Sense and Sensibility, Elinor is as prudent as her sister Marianne is impetuous. Each must learn from the other after they are they are forced by their father's death to leave their home and enter into the contests of polite society.
Polite society is turned upside down in Pride and Prejudice, this witty drama of friendship, rivalry and love, a quintessential classic romance novel.
Emma is one of Austen's most captivating and vivid characters. Young and rich, she has decided not to get married and instead spends her time organising her acquaintances' love affairs.
In her final novel, Persuasion, Jane Austen tells the story of a love that endures the tests of time and society with humour, insight and tenderness.
Mansfield Park is considered one of Austen's darker novels, challenging the very values of tradition, stability, retirement and faithfulness it appears to endorse.
In Northanger Abbey, Austen takes a satirical swipe at the gothic novel in this classic book bursting with sly subversive wit.
