    Da Elizabeth Bennet møder den rige ungkarl Fitzwilliam Darcy, synes hun, at han er både arrogant og indbildsk. Da hun også bliver klar over, at han har stukket en kæp i hjulet for hendes søster Janes kærlighed til hans ven Bingley, vokser hendes modvilje til direkte afsky.Men hvad hun ikke ved, er, at mr. Darcy meget mod sin vilje er blevet betaget af hendes kønne øjne og kvikke tunge, og at denne betagelse er ved at udvikle sig til en meget alvorlig forelskelse.Stolthed og fordom er en af verdenslitteraturens store kærlighedsromaner og en gnistrende satire over sladder og snobbethed i samtidens engelske middelklasse, hvor en mors eneste ambition var at få afsat sine giftefærdige døtre så fordelagtigt som muligt.Romanen er filmatiseret adskillige gange og foreligger med denne nyoversættelse på dansk i en uforkortet udgave.

    Marianne Dashwood har følelserne uden på tøjet, og da hun forelsker sig i den flotte men upassende John Willoughby, ignorerer hun sin storesøster Elinors advarsel om, at hendes impulsive opførsel gør hende til genstand for sladder og hentydninger. Elinor er derimod altid opmærksom på de sociale konventioner og kæmper for at skjule sin egen romantiske skuffelse, selv for sine allernærmeste.Gennem søstrenes sideløbende erfaringer med kærlighed – og frygten for at miste den – lærer de, at de må være både fornuftige og følsomme, hvis de skal finde lykken i et samfund, hvor magt og status afgør kærlighedens spilleregler.’Fornuft og følelse’ er en af verdenslitteraturens største kærlighedsromaner, som nu udgives i en ny oversættelse af Vibeke Houstrup.

    Introduction and Notes by Dr Ian Littlewood, University of Sussex.Pride and Prejudice, which opens with one of the most famous sentences in English Literature, is an ironic novel of manners. In it the garrulous and empty-headed Mrs Bennet has only one aim - that of finding a good match for each of her five daughters. In this she is mocked by her cynical and indolent husband.With its wit, its social precision and, above all, its irresistible heroine, Pride and Prejudice has proved one of the most enduringly popular novels in the English language.

    Fanny Price kommer fra fattige kår, men er vokset op hos sin rige onkel og tante på det storslåede, idylliske gods Mansfield Park sammen med sine kusiner og fætre. Hun er meget bevidst om sin underordnede status, og hendes eneste allierede er fætteren Edmund, der altid tager hende i forsvar over for de mange urimeligheder, hun udsættes for af den øvrige familie. Mens Fannys onkel er på forretningsrejse i Antigua, flytter de to søskende Mary og Henry Crawford til egnen. Med dem bringer de Londons charme og glamour, og der opstår hurtigt en forbindelse mellem dem og de unge mennesker på Mansfield Park. Dette nye bekendtskab vender op og ned på livet på godset, der kommer til at danne kulisse for et dristigt teaterstykke, ublu flirten, forelskelse, jalousi og splid. Mansfield Park bliver betragtet som Jane Austens mest modne, komplekse og kontroversielle roman med hendes undersøgelse af social position og moralsk integritet. "Lidenskab, erotik, fare og forbudt kærlighed lurer under overfladen i Mansfield Park." - The Telegraph

    Catherine Morland er en naiv, men godhjertet 17-årig pige, der gør sin debut i middelklassens selskabsliv i 1790?ernes Bath. Catherine finder hurtigt en veninde i den kokette Isabella Thorpe, som hun deler en ivrig fascination for gotiske romaner med. Hun fatter ligeledes hurtigt interesse for den intelligente og vittige Henry Tilney og udvikler senere et venskab med hans søster, Eleanor Tilney, der resulterer i en invitation til familiens hjem: Northanger Abbey. På det gamle abbedi sprudler Catherines livlige fantasi, der er påvirket af hendes litterære smag for gotiske romaner, men med tiden indser hun sandheder, som hun før har været blind overfor. NORTHANGER ABBEY blev først udgivet posthumt, men var skrevet allerede i Jane Austens ungdom, og er uden tvivl hendes mest gådefulde og opløftende roman - en roman som parodierer over den gotiske genre ved at have Catherine som den aparte heltinde. Romanen er nyoversat ved Vibeke Houstrup, som også har stået for oversættelsen af de andre i Austen-serien. Jane Austen(1775-1817) var engelsk forfatter og kendt for sine store romaner om kvinder, deres ægteskab og sociale og økonomiske stand.

    'The wit of Jane Austen has for partner the perfection of her taste' Virginia WoolfJane Austen's subtle and witty novel of secrets and suppression, lies and seduction, brilliantly portrays a world where rigid social convention clashes with the impulses of the heart. It tells the story of two very different sisters who find themselves thrown into an unkind world when their father dies. Marianne, wild and impulsive, falls dangerously in love, while Elinor suffers her own private heartbreak but conceals her true feelings, even from those closest to her.

    Introduction and Notes by Professor Stephen Arkin, San Francisco University.'Young women who have no economic or political power must attend to the serious business of contriving material security'. Jane Austen's sardonic humour lays bare the stratagems, the hypocrisy and the poignancy inherent in the struggle of two very different sisters to achieve respectability.Sense and Sensibility is a delightful comedy of manners in which the sisters Elinor and Marianne represent these two qualities. Elinor's character is one of Augustan detachment, while Marianne, a fervent disciple of the Romantic Age, learns to curb her passionate nature in the interests of survival.This book, the first of Austen's novels to be published, remains as fresh a cautionary tale today as it ever was.

    The abridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Jane Austens classic tale of love and loss, Persuasion. Read by the actress Geraldine McEwan. At 27, Anne Elliot is no longer young and has few romantic prospects. Eight years earlier, she had been persuaded by her friend Lady Russell to break off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth, a handsome naval captain with neither fortune nor rank. What happens when they encounter each other again is movingly told in Jane Austens last completed novel. Set in the fashionable societies of Lyme Regis and Bath, Persuasion is a brilliant satire of vanity and pretension, but, above all, it is a love story tinged with the heartache of missed opportunities.

    Introduction and Notes by Elaine Jordan, Reader in Literature, University of Essex.What does persuasion mean - a firm belief, or the action of persuading someone to think something else? Anne Elliot is one of Austen's quietest heroines, but also one of the strongest and the most open to change. She lives at the time of the Napoleonic wars, a time of accident, adventure, the making of new fortunes and alliances.A woman of no importance, she manoeuvres in her restricted circumstances as her long-time love Captain Wentworth did in the wars. Even though she is nearly thirty, well past the sell-by bloom of youth, Austen makes her win out for herself and for others like herself, in a regenerated society.

    With an Introduction and Notes by Dr Nicola Bradbury, University of Reading.Jane Austen teased readers with the idea of a 'heroine whom no one but myself will much like', but Emma is irresistible. 'Handsome, clever, and rich', Emma is also an 'imaginist', 'on fire with speculation and foresight'. She sees the signs of romance all around her, but thinks she will never be married.Her matchmaking maps out relationships that Jane Austen ironically tweaks into a clearer perspective. Judgement and imagination are matched in games the reader too can enjoy, and the end is a triumph of understanding.

    STOLTHED OG FORDOM regnes med rette blandt den engelske romanlitteraturs mesterværker. Handlingen udspilles i Sydengland, af hvis beboere forfatterinden tegner et morsomt, psykologisk billede gennemtrængt af fin, satirisk ironi. Vi møder den unge, ugifte, charme­rende godsejer, der vækker forhåbninger hos såvel de unge piger på egnen som hos deres mødre, og hans snobbede, overlegne ven. Morsom er den hyggelige, in­telligente og slagfærdige mr. Bennett med sine fem døtre og konen, hvis eneste mål i livet er at kapre rige mænd til dem. Typisk for tiden er også den affable landsbypræst, ydmyg og bukkende, når han er i selskab med egnens notabiliteter. Desuden indeholder romanen mange andre morsomme og særprægede skikkelser, der hver for sig er skildret med stor psykologisk forståelse og megen vid. Jane Austens stil er klar, jævn og meget afbalanceret. Hendes ry som romanforfatterinde har stadig været stigende, og hun læses idag som for hun­drede år siden med samme interesse og spænding, hvad millionoplagene i hendes hjemland og de utallige over­sættelser af hendes bøger verden over tydeligt viser
