Sense and sensibility, Austen` s first major novel, is the compelling story of two sisters of opposing temperaments.
The romantic clash of two opinionated young people, Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, provides the sustaining theme of Pride and Prejudice. This classic novel captures all the hilarious class consciousness of eighteenth-century English families.
Emma represents the genius of Jane Austen at its full maturity. This magnificent novel centres on Emma Woodhouse, a supremely confident young woman determined to arrange her life and those around her into a pettern dictated by her romantic fancies. Jane Austen declared Emma a heroine “no one but myself will much like”. But generations of readers have profoundly disagreed.
