Hs and lows of a young irl's lot in life and a precursor of Austen's later works of enius It is accompanied by 'The Three Sisters' another expertly crafted epistolary novel and the brilliant 'A Collection of Letters' which has been described by Fay Weldon as 'five just about perfect short stories'. Ad if you chuse but do not faintAlso I find it fascinating to read Austen s early fiction It kind of ives her later books a history This ain t it chiefStick with the classic novels I found some Juveniles Kindle editions of Jane Austen Love Friendship was the one I wanted to try next This was about 97 pages which included 2 short stories Jane s history of the kings ueens of England collections of letters scraps Love and Friendship is of a rough incomplete thought story but complete enough that you would have liked a book instead of this 30 page story When I was ready this I saw the mature writer Jane Austen trying to tell a story Having read all her novels including Lady Susan which many say these stories in Love Friendship should have been published instead of that story The similarity between Lady Susan almost all the short stories in Love Friendship is that they are all written epistolary style which I must say I really enjoy I agree that these stories are better than Lady Susan I have read Sense Sensibility and loved that book but had a hard time understanding the Sensibility but these stories had cleared that up for me I know that seem silly that a word being defined in a dictionary but not really understanding what it means It is simple Sensibility means caring understanding not just for oneself but others that is how it is used in her Juveniles stories Love and Friendship Isabel is imploring her friend Laura now middle age to ive the details of her misfortunes and Adventures of your Life Laura decides to write to her daughter Marianne She The Prodigal Prophet: Jonah and the Mystery of God's Mercy gives the history through a series of letters This story is the roughest reminds me of Anne Radcliffe s characters swooning in need of assistance I really think this would have made areat novel because there is a lot of adventure but too coincidental at parts throughout All these stories seem to have a melancholy endings compares to a happier Austen in her books This was written in 1790 most of her works at this time around 17 years oldLesley Castle This is my favorite of these stories The humor in this delicious in ways than one This is so like her published adult books but also with a kind of sadness but not as much as Love Friendship Charlotte Margaret are friends and correspond about friends family The History of England Jane tells of the Kings ueens with her dry sense of humor Collection of Letters 5 letters a story in each not related to each other Interesting mix of the working of Austen s mind Scraps a very short play many really short stories Excerpt This is from Love Friendship My Father started What noise is that said he It sounds like a loud rapping at the door replied my Mother it does indeed cried I I am of your opinion said my Father it certainly does appear to proceed from some uncommon violence exerted against our unoffending door Yes exclaimed I I cannot help thinking it must be something who knocks for admittance As a rule I m confounded by Austen novels but decided to pick up one of her shortest and Deal Maker (Mixed Messages Book 2) (English Edition) give it a whirl Mistake I didn tet this one either I found it heart wrenchingly tragic but per Wikipedia she wrote it at age 14 to mock romance books I henceforth return to relishing Austen via British cinema and blame my sappiness here straight on Bollywood In order to enjoy this book you have to know a few things First Jane Austen wrote this compilation of short stories between the age of 11 18 to entertain her family The main stories were written when Jane was 14 15 years old Moreover the Laura story was written as a parody of the romantic notions of the time I say this bc when I started the book I found the characters to be silly foolish overly emotional overly dramatic nitwits I couldn t believe this was Jane Austen so I did some uick research Having discovered that the characters were a parody of of sensibility susceptibility to feelings emotionalism *cult of susceptibility to feelings emotionalism I enjoyed the stories much As one put it Violent and overt emotions substitute for morality and common sense Characters who have this sensibility fall into each other s arms weeping the first time they ever meet and on suffering any misfortune are too preoocupied wit.
