Some of the most fascinating journals and letters to have been written in the last three hundred years. All performed by leading actors in a dramatised setting with music & soundtrack.

'Everybody allows that the talent of writing agreeable letters is peculiarly female.' - Jane Austen - Northanger Abbey.

Born at Steventon in 1775, the daughter of a Hampshire clergyman, Jane Austen was the youngest of seven children. She lived a quiet life, moving to Bath, Southampton, Chawton and eventually to Winchester where she died unmarried in 1817 at the age of forty-two.

It is to her elder sister Cassandra that most of her surviving letters are written, and through them we discover the intimate world of the English gentry. They are at times both candid and wickedly indiscreet, detailing the joys and sorrows of her large family, providing us with an insight into the life of one of England's great novelists.

    " I've read many of Austen's letters and loved them, and while I intend to finish this edition, there's quite a lot to get through for one big chunk of reading. Will have to read in smaller pieces. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Rebecca | 8/22/2010

    " The other part of Jane Austen -- all those letters she wrote. It's a pity that her sister Cassandra destroyed many of them, but enough of them were save. One of the top scholars about Jane Austen has done the editing here. The Folio Society edition is a gorgeous one as well. "

    " An intriguing author and even more intriguing person. "
