Emma stands a little apart from Jane Austen's other novels. It is perhaps the most self-aware, socially critical and ironic of all her works. Her protagonist, Emma Woodhouse, is a beautiful, rich girl who is also spoiled, proud and blinded by her own situation in life. She begins to understand herself and life a little better when her romantic schemes - charitable good works to those around her - become entangled in tensions of class and of the heart.

Jane Austen is the definitive biography of one of Britain's best-loved novelists, from the acclaimed author of Samuel Pepys: The Unequalled Self, Charles Dickens: A Life and The Invisible Woman 'As near perfect a life of Austen as we are likely to get: intelligent, feeling, suggestive' Carmen Callil, Daily Telegraph 'Tomalin has written a biography that reflects Austen's own exacting standards, a book that radiates intelligence, wit and insight' Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times 'Of all the Austen biographies, this is the best ... leaves the reader with a much deeper appreciation of the circumstances and motivation behind the creation of those six perfect novels' Harpers & Queen 'I cannot think that a better life of Jane Austen then Claire Tomalin's will be written for many years.' Philip Hensher, Mail on Sunday 'A perfect biography: detailed, witty, warm. Tomalin involves us so deeply that Austen's final illness and death come almost as a personal tragedy to the reader' Dirk Bogarde, Daily Telegraph, Books of the Year

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen is eminently, delightfully, and delectably quotable. This truth goes far beyond the first line of Pride and Prejudice, which has muscled out many other excellent sentences. So many gems of wit and wisdom from her novels deserve to be better known, from Northanger Abbey on its lovable, naive heroine—“if adventures will not befal a young lady in her own village, she must seek them abroad”—to Persuasion’s moving lines of love from its regret-filled hero: “You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late.” Devoney Looser, a.k.a. Stone Cold Jane Austen, has drawn 378 genuine, Austen-authored passages from across the canon, resulting in an anthology that is compulsively readable and repeatable. Whether you approach the collection on a one-a-day model or in a satisfying binge read, you will emerge wiser about Austen, if not about life. The Daily Jane Austen will amuse and inspire skeptical beginners, Janeite experts, and every reader in between by showcasing some of the greatest sentences ever crafted in the history of fiction.

Catherine Morland es una muchacha «tan corriente como la que más»... sólo que tiende a ver la vida como una novela. Cuando es presentada en sociedad en Bath, conoce a un joven apuesto y refinado y se siente como en una novela sentimental. Luego, invitada por el padre del joven, pasa una temporada en una antigua abadía, donde sospecha que se cobijan terribles secretos, como en una novela gótica. Pero la realidad, que también tiene sus secretos, le revelará al fin un mundo acaso más absurdo y angustioso que el imaginado en la peor de sus fantasías. Novela de novelas, literatura de literatura, La abadía de Northanger, escrita antes de 1803 pero no publicada hasta 1818, póstumamente, encierra en una sátira literaria una hiriente reflexión sobre los prejuicios y crueldades de la sociedad, y es sin duda una de las obras más agudas y divertidas de Jane Austen.

«El noble joven nos informó de que su nombre era Lindsay, aunque por razones particulares lo llamaré aquí Talbot.» He aquí una elocuente muestra de lo que Chesterton calificó como «una especie de elegancia del absurdo» al caracterizar los escritos juveniles de Jane Austen, de los que reunimos en este volumen –bajo el titulo de Amor y amistad- una completa selección por primera vez en español. En ellos encontramos todo lo que con el tiempo constituirá el universo adulto de nuestra autora: ironía, ingenio, construcción, sátira de lo romántico y despiadados comentarios sociales. Pero también un extraño talento para lo disparatado y sin sentido, y una predilección por un tipo inusitado de heroína –capaz de emborracharse, robar, asesinar, disponer de un ejército privado o ser encerrada en una mazmorra- que nunca más volveremos a encontrar. Una inventiva sin trabas y un gusto exuberante aplicados genialmente al serio propósito de una irresistible comicidad.
