Description

* On Sale Now! (Normal price $2.99) *

Written in epistolary style, it is the story of Lady Susan, a beautiful, recent widow with no conscience, a woman who is determined to do exactly what she wants to do, to charm and/or seduce any man who appeals to her, and to secure a proper marriage for her teenage daughter, whom she considers both unintelligent and lacking in charm.

Lady Susan, the character, has no redeeming qualities, other than her single-mindedness, and her problems, entirely self-imposed, show the extremes to which an unprincipled woman will go to ensure her own pleasure and ultimately a more secure, comfortable life.

As Lady Susan manipulates men, women, and even her young nieces and nephews, her venality knows no bounds, and when she determines that her daughter Frederica WILL marry Sir James, a man who utterly repulses her, Lady Susan's love of power and her willingness to create whatever "truth" best suits her purpose become obvious.

Most Austen fans will find the piece interesting. Some like the character herself, Lady Susan, because she is a strong character and that is the attraction of the work.

It shows Austen as a more playful novelist than in her other novels, an author who is obviously having fun introducing a wild card like Lady Susan into polite society to show how ill-equipped men are to deal with someone so clever.

Though Lady Susan is considered part of Jane Austen's "juvenilia, " having been written ca. 1805, it was not published till well after Jane Austen's death.

A magnificently crafted novel of Regency manners that will delight Austen enthusiasts with its wit and elegant expression.
