The first modern, fully annotated edition of the works of Jane Austen is now published complete in nine volumes. Six volumes on the published novels - Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion - are accompanied by two devoted to Austen's manuscripts, her brilliant juvenile writing, and the unpublished work of her adulthood. Each is edited by leading Austen scholars, and includes comprehensive information on the circumstances of the creation and publication of the work concerned, and its critical reception, together with textual and explanatory notes. To complete the set Jane Austen in Context offers a wide range of essays illuminating Austen's life, work and times. Together these volumes complete the picture - as far as we now have it - of the work of one of the greatest, as well as best-loved, British novelists.

Reviews

"This first three-volume set in Cambridge's new Austen series includes two of her best titles plus a collection of essays about her work. The novels are fully annotated and include scholarly introductions covering the context and publication history of each novel, plus explanatory notes on the texts. The series eventually will include nine volumes." -- Library Journal

“The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Jane Austen performs an admirable service for readers - and particularly scholars - of Austen. It is a service that will no doubt last for generations to come." -- Editionen in der Kritik

“Need hard-pressed college libraries spend hundred of dollars on the new Cambridge Jane Austen set? The answer is yes - and the sooner the better.” --Choice

“...certain to be the standard critical edition of all Austen’s works.” -Times Literary Supplement
