OVERVIEW

Lady Susan is an epistolary novel by Jane Austen, possibly written in 1794 but not published until 1871. Although the theme, together with the focus on character study and moral issues, is close to Austen's published work , its outlook is very different, and the heroine has few parallels in 19th-century literature.

Lady Susan subverts all the standards of the romantic novel: she has an active role, she's not only beautiful but intelligent and witty, and her suitors are significantly younger than she is . Although the ending includes a traditional reward for morality, Lady Susan herself is treated much more mildly than the adulteress in Mansfield Park, who is severely punished.

This Special Critical Edition of LADY SUSAN is the only volume which contains the complete unabridged novel along with A MEMOIR OF JANE AUSTEN a comprehensive biography of Jane Austen by Jane Austen's nephew James Edward Austen-Leigh. A Memoir of Jane Austen was the first major biography of the novelist Jane Austen and was published in 1869 by her nephew James Edward Austen-Leigh. A family project, the biography was written by James Edward Austen-Leigh but owed much to the recollections of Jane Austen's many relatives.
