  • Product Information
    • Jane Austen (16th December 1775 -18th July 1817), was an English novelist and was best known for novels such as Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, and Emma. Her novels often explored the dependence of woman on marriage to elevate themselves into a higher social standing.

      The Jane Austen Treasury is an engaging collection of facts on the life and times of the great novelist and insights into the attitudes and customs that shaped both her and her work. Taking each of her novels in turn, and exploring both underlying themes and historical context, it reveals the complexities that underlie her simple and timeless romances.
