C'è poco da fare: Jane Austen è una specie di sigillo di garanzia! Ogni sua opera è affascinate e avvincente e coinvolgente… anche quelle incompiute! Ho apprezzo molto Lady Susan, romanzo particolare nel 'palinsesto' della Austen in quanto scritto sotto forma di epistolario. La protagonista è diversa dalle eroine cui siamo abituati: egocentrica, egoista, vendicativa, ma tremendamente intelligente, sagace e abile nel manipolare l'animo altrui. Alla fine, direi, tutto è bene quel che finisc [...]
Remarkable that the grease stained pages found down the back of the sofa or stuffed into a drawer or still on the desktop when Jane Austen died should be so entrancing 200 years later. And Margaret Drabble's intro is judicious and knowledgeable.I have now read almost (but not quite) everything that JA wrote; her Juvenilia would make me a 'completist'. Horrible word. It sounds like some Orwellian newspeak term for someone who goes round co-ercing people into committing suicide.She may well have b [...]
"C'è qualcosa di piacevole nei sentimenti che si lasciano manovrare tanto facilmente. Non che abbia invidia, né vorrei, per nulla al mondo, averne di simili, ma si dimostrano utili quando si desidera influenzare le passioni di un altro."Oh, Jane, immensa, incredibile, dolcissima Jane: no so cosa darei per avere un altro tuo romanzo, o per poter rileggere tutti i tuoi romanzi per la prima volta. Cosa darei, seriamente, non lo so, perché la ricompensa non sarebbe in alcun modo quantificabile. N [...]
I wanted to love this, I really did. I mean, it's JANE AUSTEN, you know?? And yet, here we are. I don't think it helped that I was slightly slumpy when I was reading this and that it therefore took me the better part of four days to get through this 200 page book. I wanted to love Lady Susan, because it was such a unique way of telling a story. But it was so full of horrible characters that I just came out at meh. I wanted to love The Watsons, but it felt like it was speeding along without any d [...]
I can't remember where or when I got my copy of this book. I vaguely remember getting it cheaply and being happy to have some of Austen's minor works. It sat on a shelf for many years, but then I wanted a refresher read of Lady Susan because of the upcoming movie adaption that is whimsically named 'Love & Friendship'.Much to my pleasure and surprise, this book had a fascinating introduction of the three works that discussed the background of the stories, speculation about Austen's choice in [...]
Tres relatos únicos y que demuestran que Jane Austen desde muy joven estaba destinada a ser una gran escritora. El modo de describir su sociedad, costumbres, añoranzas y desesperanzas es inigualable.
Tres porque Lady Susan y Los Watson fueron muy buenos y el mundo se quedó sin ellos pero Sandition hizo que quisiera arrancarme los ojos :) Los Parker son insufribles y Lady Denham me recuerda a alguien igual de fea persona.
Lady Susan ★★★★Non so come abbia fatto la Austen, ma con il personaggio di Lady Susan ha fatto davvero un mezzo miracolo: ha reso simpatica una manipolatrice fatta e finita.Ho molto apprezzato anche la forma del romanzo epistolare, anche se nelle prime lettere ho faticato un pochino a inquadrare i vari personaggiI Watson ★★★★Giuro che arrivata alla fine ci sono rimasta malissimo Sapevo che era un romanzo incompiuto, e ho cercato di non farmi prendere troppo dalla storia e dai per [...]
Three unfinished stories are included in this collection ("Lady Susan," "The Watsons," and "Sanditon"), plus a lot of additional reading under the titles of "Introduction," "Social Background," "A Note on the Text," "Notes," and "Chronology."Despite being called the "Introduction," I think that chapter might actually be best read after having finished each of the stories. It certainly sheds light on story lines and characters, but it's hard to follow without knowing who or what is being discusse [...]
I reviewed each of these separately on my blog:Lady Susan is a very short novel (less than 100 pages) by Jane Austen, considered one of her “minor works.” It was likely written in 1793 or 1794, but it was not published until after her death. Lady Susan is an epistolary novel, and it’s the only novel I’ve read by Austen with a horrid “heroine” — but that’s what makes her so interesting.Lady Susan Vernon is a recent widow who had an affair with a married man, whose wife’s jealous [...]
Sandition, by Jane AustenUncompleted, Sandition was the last of Jane Austen’s work.Another delightful short read by Austen. I can’t say enough about how much I revel in these brief , yet brilliant works. Sandition brought me the light read and humour I desperately needed after the meatier books I last dove into.Sandition, is the name of a new beach resort village in its coming of age. Because it is a relatively unknown area in need of new residents, travelers and reputable people-the then lo [...]
This book of Jane Austen short stories was a bit of a mixed bag. 'Lady Susan' is interesting because it is more experimental due to the fact that it is both written in the form of letter entries and the main character is not one of Austen's usual heroines.My favourite of the stories was 'The Watsons', an unfinished novel, it's written very much in the style of 'Pride and Prejudice' and if finished would have been a magnificent addition to her six completed novels.I did not enjoy 'The Sanditons' [...]
4 estrellasEs difícil opinar sobre la obra de un autor que está incompleta, más aún si ese autor del que hablamos es Jane Austen y tenemos 6 novelas con las cuales comparar.De las tres obras contenidas en esta edición, es Lady Susan la que destaca por lo diferente que resulta su planteamiento: protagonizada por una villana, y narrada a través de cartas, Lady Susan usa uno de los temas autenistas regalones de la autora: la mala madre. Los Watson en cambio se apega más a sus novelas cumbres [...]
Reading Lady Susan/The Watsons/Sanditon you learn some information about living in the Eighteenth Century. Also, insight into Jane Austen life and books.Lady Susan is a short story written in the letter literacy format that was popular in the Eighteen Century. Lady Susan was a widow who tried to organise marriage for her daughter to a man she does not like. However, it did not work out the way Lady Susan wanted. Sandition and Watsons are stories that Jane Austen did not complete before she died. [...]
Lady Susan se llevó todas las flores, definitivamente.
This is my current favorite-to-talk-about book, and I wish wish wish that more people read it so it would come up more frequently in conversations. Considering that Austen has six completed novels and this volume has only one completed epistolary novel and two novel fragments, I doubt many readers will cross paths with it. It's arguable that Austen herself would not have wanted people reading these works salvaged from her notes and papers, but they are a pleasure. It's extremely hard to approach [...]
Lady Susan is a short epistolary novella written by Jane Austen. What intrigued me is that Lady Susan really is the most morally bankrupt (maybe 'amoral' is better?) of any of Austen heroines (and I use the term 'heroine' loosely here). She will think, say and do anything to achieve her means. This novella, presented as series of letters, was written by the young Jane Austen, and first published long after her death. One surmises that she probably did not intend for it to see the light of day in [...]
Muy buenas historias y bastante bien para empezar con Jane Austen. Me hubiera gustado saber cómo termina Los Watson y Sandition pero lo que alcanzó a escribir fue muy bueno; Lady Susan es muy buena historia y diferente a lo que había leído, me gustó mucho.
I own editions of these works, but this particular collection is worth having for a reason that will make me sound like a wimp: the two unfinished novels, "The Watsons" and "Sanditon," are finally, blessedly broken up into paragraphs. They only exist in draft form, and previous editors have simply presented the block text Austen left behind. Call me a wuss: I can't read a 30-page paragraph comfortably. Margaret Drabble sympathized with this sentiment and did the work to make these important work [...]
This definitely shouldn't be your introduction to Jane Austen, and imagine it would only be picked up by avid fans like myself having read and reread her six mature completed novels and hungry for more. Lady Susan, which feels truncated, is a very early epistolary novel, and The Watsons was abandoned and Sandition left incomplete upon Austen's death. (And incidentally, if you have the version with an introduction with Margaret Drabble, you might want to read it aftewards--she gives too much away [...]
I am not entirely sure that I read this back in The Day, decades ago, when I was first discovering Austen. I certainly bought the book back then! But it is only somewhat aged and faded, and not falling apart like the rest of my Penguin paperback versions of Austen. All I really remember is the carriage smash that opens "Sanditon" - but I might have read about that elsewhere.So this has been in effect new to me - and in fact I saved it for after viewing the new film "Love and Friendship", which w [...]
LADY SUSANI haven't ever read a novel in this style before, at least of the 18th century classics, so it was a new experience for me. It was certainly a fun read, with me always wondering what would happen next and what the real truth was. I loved how it ended, with Lady Susan having the last laugh, in a sense anyway. And I can say for certain that Lady Susan is the naughtiest Austen leading lady I've encountered to date. :)THE WATSONSThis is probably the one I really wish had been finished, 'ca [...]
First read: many years ago, probably pre-2012Second read: 4-5 December 2016Lady Susan: 4 starsFind my review here.The Watsons: 3 starsThis one is an enjoyable read, but I can see why Jane Austen herself decided to abandon the project. While her humour is clear even from these first few pages, the characters are not as well drawn as her others, and many situations echo parts of her finished novels. Still, I am sure that, had she decided to develop it better and finish it, I would have liked it as [...]
This is the first I have ever heard of these three writings of Jane Austen. I have been a fan of her writings for many years and I was surprised to find other stories that I have read. Lady Susan was a very curious book, I guess one calls it an epistolary novel, but it was quite different than other writings by Jane Austen. I was deeply captured by The Watsons, I would have been delighted even more if it had been a complete novel. I would have loved to see the end results of such a story that ha [...]
Sin duda alguna, un libro que fue una grata sorpresa encontrar entre las estanterías de una librería de mi ciudad. Admirar le queda corto a lo que siento por Jane Austen, y poder tener la dicha de leer estas novelas suyas inconclusas es el mayor placer.-Lady Susan. Qué puedo comentar de esta detestable protagonista. La hubiera redimido si en verdad se mostrara tal cual es, pero crear tantas redes de mentiras y maquiavélicos pensamientos me conducen a no estar satisfecha con su final, que si [...]
Tre piccoli gioielliQuando Jane Austen scrive il suo primo romanzo compiuto, Lady Susan, che sarà pubblicato nel 1871 ad opera del nipote dell’autrice, ha solo 19 anni e i grandi capolavori che le concederanno eterna gloria sono ancora lontani (anche se non troppo), eppure questo romanzo breve, luminoso e divertentissimo sa già catturare il lettore e presenta tutte le caratteristiche che di lì a poco, affinate e sviluppate, renderanno indimenticabili opere come Ragione e sentimento e Orgogl [...]
4 stars for Lady Susan, a hilarious epistolary novella. Also highly recommend watching "Love & Friendship" before or after reading to help better understand the plot. Since The Watsons & Sanditon were unfinished and likely unintended to ever be seen, I hold my star judgement on them (I didn't like them, though).
Enjoyed this set of stories, but much wordier than her later books.
