Love and Freindship and Other Early Works
Love and Freindship and Other Early Works Author:Jane Austen These delightful early writing by Jane Austen, author of Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, were not published during her lifetime and have been published only rarely since. Written by one of the world's dreatest and most beloved novelists, this volume reveals what became Austen's personal trademarks in her mature works - a combinati... more »on of comic inventiveness, parody, and a brilliant ear for dialogue.
"Love and Freindship" is a hilarious romp in which two young ladies cavort about eighteenth-century England, leaving havoc in their wake and poking fun at such popularly applauded traditions as vaporous ladies and middle-class gentility. In the "Letters," "The Three Sisters," "Lesley Castle," and the unique "History of England," Jane Austen's fine sense of the absurd is evident. Together these pieces illustrate her greatest gift, the inspiration of laughter.
