'This perfect indifference, and your pointed dislike, make it so delightfully absurd!' Pride and Prejudice has delighted generations of readers with its unforgettable cast of characters, carefully choreographed plot, and a hugely entertaining view of the world and its absurdities. With the arrival of eligible young men in their neighbourhood, the lives of Mr and Mrs Bennet and their five daughters are turned inside out and menide down. Pride encounters prejudice, upward-mobility confronts social disdain, and quick-wittedness challenges sagacity, as misconceptions and hasty judgements lead to heartache and scandal, but eventually to true understanding, self-knowledge, and love. In this supremely satisfying story, Jane Austen balances comedy with seriousness, and witty observation with profound insight. If Elizabeth Bennet returns again and again to her letter from Mr Darcy, readers of the novel are drawn even more irresistibly by its captivating wisdom. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Bei Jane Austen geht es wie immer ums Ehestiften, diesmal ist der Schauplatz der idyllische englische Badeort Sanditon. Als Charlotte Heywood dort eintrifft, gerät sie sofort in eine turbulente Gesellschaft. Als Jane Austen 1817 starb, war der Roman unvollendet. 1975 unternahm es die Austen-Verehrerin Marie Dobbs, die Handlung kunstvoll fortzuspinnen, und brachte auf so unterhaltsame Weise etliche glückliche Paare zusammen, daß es schwerfällt zu glauben, Jane Austen habe nicht selbst den Schlußpunkt gesetzt.

"Es ist eine allgemein anerkannte Wahrheit, dass ein Junggeselle im Besitz eines schönen Vermögens nichts dringender braucht als eine Frau." - Dieser berühmte Satz steht am Anfang eines Romans, der zu den erfolgreichsten Liebesgeschichten der Weltliteratur gehört. Eine gehörige Portion "Stolz" muss abgelegt und so manches "Vorurteil" aus dem Weg geräumt werden, bis Elizabeth und Mr. Darcy endlich ein Paar werden.

In one of her personal letters, Jane Austen wrote "Little Matters they are to be sure, but highly important." In fact, letter-writing was something of an addiction for young women of Jane Austen's time and in her social position, and Austen's letters have a freedom and familiarity that only intimate writing can convey. Wiser than her critics, who were disappointed that her correspondence dwelt on gossip and the minutiae of everyday living, Austen understood the importance of "Little Matters," of the emotional and material details of individual lives shared with friends and family through the medium of the letter. Ironic, acerbic, always entertaining, Jane Austen's letters are a fascinating record not only of her own day-to-day existence, but of the pleasures and frustrations experienced by women of her social class which are so central to her novels. Vivien Jones's selection includes nearly two-thirds of Austen's surviving correspondence, and her lively introduction and notes set the novelist's most private writings in their wider cultural context.

'She had been forced into prudence in her youth, she learned romance as she grew older - the natural sequel of an unnatural beginning.' Anne Elliot seems to have given up on present happiness and has resigned herself to living off her memories. More than seven years earlier she complied with duty: persuaded to view the match as imprudent and improper, she broke off her engagement to a naval captain with neither fortune, ancestry, nor prospects. However, when peacetime arrives and brings the Navy home, and Anne encounters Captain Wentworth once more, she starts to believe in second chances. Persuasion celebrates romantic constancy in an era of turbulent change. Written as the Napoleonic Wars were ending, the novel examines how a woman can at once remain faithful to her past and still move forward into the future.

'"Pray, pray be composed," cried Elinor, "and do not betray what you feel to every body present. Perhaps he has not observed you yet."' For Elinor Dashwood, sensible and sensitive, and her romantic, impetuous younger sister Marianne, the prospect of marrying the men they love appears remote. In a world ruled by money and self-interest, the Dashwood sisters have neither fortune nor connections. Concerned for others and for social proprieties, Elinor is ill-equipped to compete with self-centred fortune-hunters like Lucy Steele, whilst Marianne's unswerving belief in the truth of her own feelings makes her more dangerously susceptible to the designs of unscrupulous men. Through her heroines' parallel experiences of love, loss, and hope, Jane Austen offers a powerful analysis of the ways in which women's lives were shaped by the claustrophobic society in which they had to survive.

Das Stürmische, Wilde und Raue der nordenglischen Moor- und Heidelandschaft hat sich tief eingeprägt in die Charaktere dieses Romans, der im Dezember 1847 erschien, ein Jahr nur, bevor Emily Brontë dreißigjährig an Schwindsucht starb. Niemand legt den von Ingrid Rein kongenial übersetzten Band aus den Händen, bevor er weiß, wie's ausgeht: "Ist Mr. Heathcliff ein Mensch? Wenn ja, ist er verrückt? Und wenn nicht, ist er ein Teufel?" Sturmhöhe ist ein dramatisches, stellenweise grausig-geniales Stück Weltliteratur.

The story of poor relation Fanny Price's loyal love for the son of the family is presented here with a new introduction by Marilyn Butler. - ;Mansfield Park is a study of three families - the Bertrams, the Crawfords, and the Prices - with the isolated figure of the heroine, Fanny Price, at its centre. Fanny's quiet passivity, her steadfast loyalty and love for the son of the family who regard her as the poor relation, are among the qualities whose true worth is not appreciated until they are tried against the brilliant and witty Mary and Henry Crawford, the unfortunate consequences of whose influence are felt by everyone. Jane Austen uses Fanny's emotional involvement with the people around her to explore the social and moral values by which she and they try to order their lives. First published in 1814, the text of this edition is taken from R. W. Chapman's Oxford edition. -
