All the poems Jane Austen wrote, and many of those she read and valued, and which play a part in her novels.
As in many households in the late eighteenth century, writing verses was a pastime with the Austen family, and the composition of ingenious riddles and charades provided a source of lively entertainment. This volume of verses by Jane Austen and her family contains all the known poems by Jane herself as well as a selection of work by her mother, her sister Cassandra, four of her brothers, her uncle James, her nieces Anna and Fanny, her nephew James Edward and other relatives. David Selwyn provides an introduction and full explanatory notes; his transcriptions, taken from autograph manuscripts or from the earliest copies, are precise in terms of spelling punctuation and layout.
Examines the life and writings of Jane Austen including detailed synopses of her works, explanations of literary terms, biographies of friends and family, and social and historical influences.
Examines Austen's life, work, and her era, and includes a chronology of her life, her work, and of historical events
