Summary

A wonderful little collection of short stories told in the form of fictional letters by famous English author Jane Austen. Although written when she was just 14 years old for the enjoyment of family and friends, her witty dialogue and characteristic sense of humour are very much there. “A Collection of Letters” is one of Austen's earliest works (it includes her original spelling quirks) and is not to be missed by those who have read and enjoyed her works. Jane Austen (1775 – 1817) was an English author known primarily for her novels, which critique the 18th century English upper classes and contemporary novels of sensibility. Her use of irony coupled with biting social commentary and realism have led to her wide acclaim amongst scholars and critics, her work contributing to the transition to 19th-century literary realism. Other notable works by this author include: “Sense and Sensibility” (1811), “Pride and Prejudice” (1813), and “Mansfield Park” (1814). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
