Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review [Austen] uses her rapier wit to mock not only the essential silliness of 'horrid' novels, but to expose the even more horrid workings of polite society. -- Amazon.com Combines a satire on conventional novels of polite society with one on gothic tales of terror. -- Merriam Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature Northanger Abbey, her most youthful and in many ways her most brillant novel...at times dares us to pay close attention to the artistic positions and processes her other novels tend to relegate to the background. -- Claudia L. Johnson, Murray Professor of English Literature at Princeton University About an imaginative young woman who reads too many Gothic novels, the story is Austen's most lighthearted. -- Boston Globe

Author's Bio

Jane Austen (1775-1817) is considered by many scholars to be the first great woman novelist. Born in Steventon, England, she later moved to Bath and began to write for her own and her family's amusement. Her novels, set in her own English countryside, depict the daily lives of provincial middle-class families with wry observation, a delicate irony, and a good-humored wit. Glenda Jackson is the winner of two Academy Awards for her roles in Women in Love and A Touch of Class. She also received an Emmy for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth I in the acclaimed BBC production Elizabeth R. She won a seat in the British Parliament in 1992 and now devotes her time to politics.
