Mehr über den Autor

In Jane Austens Romanen spiegeln sich die gesellschaftlichen Verhältnisse ihrer Zeit in einzigartiger Klarheit. Eine Frau - ob adelig oder nicht - hatte nur sehr eingeschränkte Möglichkeiten, sich in Beruf oder gesellschaftlichem Engagement zu entfalten. Nur durch die Heirat mit einem reichen und weltoffenen Ehemann konnte sie eine gewisse Freiheit erlangen. In diese Zeit wurde Jane Austen am 16. Dezember 1775 geboren als siebtes von insgesamt acht Kindern eines englischen Pfarrers. Es war eine belesene und gebildete Familie, zwei ihrer Brüder brachten es gar zum Admiral. Ihr selbst hingegen gelang das Kunststück, ihre Verlobung einen Tag später wieder zu lösen und trotz schwerer Krankheit ein relativ unabhängiges Leben als unverheiratete Frau zu führen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is what Kindle is all about 2. Dezember 2010
Von Maxwell Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is exactly the type of collection that makes the Kindle such a hit. It contains all the finished works of Austen, nicely laid out and all in one place. I'm not sure what one of the other reviewers was talking about when he said there were no chapter links because there are, and they work correctly. As yet another reviewer observed, the page layouts are clean and attractive, not always the case when large volumes of literature that will never make huge profits are ported to the Kindle or other book readers.

For Austen fans, having this collection at their fingertips will be more than worth the tiny cost. Highly recommended.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Bedford Park edition has a serious flaw 19. Februar 2012
Von LIBRARIAN - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
REVISED 05-06-13: My initial inclination was to rate this set 4 or 5 stars until I realized it TOTALLY and consistently ignored Austen's use of italics in all her major works. Where Austen italicized a word for emphasis, this Bedford edition doesn't do so. Nor does it use all caps to equal italics, nor even before-and-after underlines (_like this_) the way some other editions do. When this was priced at only a dollar, some readers might have been willing to overlook this defect (if they were even aware of it), but now that the price has doubled to $1.99 (the same price as 2 superior editions in the Kindle Store), one shouldn't have to. I consider this a serious enough flaw to rate this Bedford edition only 2 stars (and as a fan of Jane Austen, I was sorely tempted to even rate it one lower).

Some readers of this review may wonder why I consider this worthy of criticism. I do because Austen (whose wonderful works rate 5+ stars) was a true wordsmith; she meant precisely what she wrote and the manner in which she wrote it. The words she chose to emphasize contribute to the way she intended her stories to be read and understood. Since she is not excessive in her use of italics, when she does so it is significant to the precise nuance or witticism she is trying to put across. That's why it IS a big deal. Without italics, something of Austen is lost. Reputable print editions all have them; why not all ebook versions? Why not THIS one?

Except for this defect the Bedford Park edition provides easy access to each title and to the chapters within each title. It provides the finished and unfinished novels plus a sampling of juvenilia. And the formatting is fine--except for the aforementioned lack of any indication of emphasis throughout (a defect which seriously mars an otherwise fine set).

One can get virtually EVERYTHING Austen wrote for the same price ($1.99) from Delphi and from Palmera. (To see for yourself, type "Delphi Austen" or "Palmera Austen" in the Kindle Bookstore searchbox.) Delphi uses italics in 4 of the 6 major works; Palmera in 5 (so I lean toward Palmera). I did NOT recommend this Bedford edition when it was priced at only a dollar, and I do not recommend it now at twice that.

3.0 von 5 Sternen you get what you pay for 3. September 2011
Von Chris Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
It's great to get all these novels on Kindle for 99 cents. But be aware that they are filled with typos - the kind that a spell-checker can't catch. At least that's true in Sense and Sensibility, the only one I've read so far. There's a typo on roughly every 4th or 5th page. But it can be fun to try to figure out what the word(s) should be from the context. Some are not very obvious.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Tales of Jane 16. Juni 2011
Von E. A Solinas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Jane Austen. Her name is practically synonymous with classic, understated romance, as well as comedies of manners with a subtle, sly sense of humor. And "Jane Austen: The Complete Collection" brings together the full complement of Austen's, from her little-known nonfiction to the classic bestseller "Pride and Prejudice" (and everything in between) -- lots of lovably flawed heroines, beautiful formal prose, and some rather unconventional love stories.

The collection includes Austen's most famous six novels, which explore love, societal demands, honor and independent thought -- a girl meddling in people's lives, two sisters with completely different romantic approaches, an "old maid" whose fiance returns to England, a poor relation whose moral standards are challenges, a hyper-romantic gothic-novel fan whose imagination runs amuck, and a slow-blooming love between a proud man and a prejudiced woman.

That's normally where people's acquaintance with Austen ends. But she actually wrote a number of other things -- a brilliantly manipulative widow who seduces, plots and schemes; her "History of England"; two unfinished novels, "The Watsons" and "Sanditon"; some letters; and some bits of her juvenalia, including some funny early spoofs and her "scraps."

This collection displays the range and depth of Austen's writing skill beautifully; though each story is very unique they're laced together by common themes. Her main novels are all love stories, tempered with some clever commentary on the society of Austen's day (example: entailment), and a biting, sharp-edged wit. But we also see her more openly comedic side ("Love and Freindship," a parody she wrote early on).

And despite the formal stuffiness of the time, Austen's writing was brilliant -- there's a bit of roughness in "Lady Susan" and "Persuasion," but nothing too dramatic. Each one has powerful emotions and vivid splashes of prose ("The wind roared round the house, and the rain beat against the windows"), as well as deliciously witty dialogue ("I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine"). But she also writes some intensely romantic moments as well ("Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you").

Austen also had an interesting range of heroines -- quiet ones, melodramatic ones, intelligent ones, naive ones, and mildly spoiled ones who think they know best. But each one has a major character flaw that must be overcome before she can find true love and happiness And she has an equally fascinating range of love interests: quiet, shy older men, sexy clever ones, blunt ones, generous honest ones, and especially the smart, sexy Mr. Darcy (who has a flaw of his own to overcome alongside Lizzie).

"Jane Austen: The Complete Collection" draws together almost all the work that Jane Austen ever produced, and let readers explore the mannered society and obstacle-filled love lives of her heroines. Brilliant, and a must-read for any reader.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Unable to read in black background mode 30. August 2012
Von Denise Berezonsky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Not sure why, but this title is illegible with the screen turned to the black background in my Kindle for the iPhone. First time I have seen this issue, and will keep me from reading it much since I always prefer to use that view when reading in bed.
