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Abbey and Persuasion - are accompanied by two devoted to Austen's manuscripts, her brilliant juvenile writing, and the unpublished work of her adulthood.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.
