Jane Austen
Adela Pinch and Edited by James Kinsley

Oxford World's Classics

  • · New edition of a perennial favorite and bestselling Austen title
  • · Re-set text has crisper, more attractive appearance and all the critical apparatus has been overhauled
  • · Includes new bibliography and chronology by General Editor Vivien Jones (University of Leeds)
  • · New introduction explores Austen's narrative technique to show how such things as shopping and gossip create the sense of a real community and on how everyday life reveals so much about characters and their relationships
  • · Entirely new notes, much more interesting on social and literary contexts than before
  • · Appendices on rank and social status and dancing provide a broader context in which to appreciate Austen's subtle ironies
