Lady Susan

    • 3.9 • 106 Ratings

Publisher Description

Although the theme, together with the focus on character study and moral issues, is close to Austen's published work (Sense and Sensibility was also originally written in the epistolary form), its outlook is very different, and the heroine has few parallels in 19th-century literature.

Lady Susan

I have long since loved Jane Austin so was pleased to read something from her I was surprisingly unacquainted with. I was kept interested enough to read it in one sitting although was surprised yet gradually pleased that the whole book was entirely of made up of correspondence between some of the characters, it made for a good idea as it allowed things to be said through personal correspondence that they would not say perhaps in company. One has to round out the characters in ones own imagination to a certain degree although you get a general sense of them, the characters are not as fully developed as in Miss Austins other books. I did though find it quite amusing, Lady Susan is quite a character. It is definitely worth a read and is certainly of merit but look at it more for amusement as one is not entirely captivated and attached as one is with some of her other wonderful books.
