Rate this:
Drawn from her world-renowned novels, private writing and extremely entertaining letters, The Wit and Wisdom of Jane Austen is an absorbing collection of the beloved author's insightful musings. Austen's social commentaries remain as fresh today as when first published, taking as their focus universal human traits -- romantic innocence, self-delusion, gullibility, greed, snobbery, rudeness, arrogance, and sycophancy. Featuring the best gems from Pride and Prejudice , Sense and Sensibilty , Emma , Mansfield Park , and Austen's other writings, The Wit and Wisdom of Jane Austen is a charming tribute to a writer whose work will resonate for centuries to come.
