being happy to have some of Austen s minor works It sat on a shelf for many years, but then I wanted a refresher read of Lady Susan because of the upcoming movie adaption that is whimsically named Love Friendship.Much to my pleasure and surprise, this book had a fascinating introduction of the three works that discussed the background of the stories, speculation about Austen s choice in not having the first two finished and published, and of course, where the two unfinished works were headed There were general historical and biographical discourses as well It was helpful and gave me a good set up to understanding before I dove into the stories themselves.Lady Susan is a quick read as it is novella length and told in the epistolary format While limiting and probably the reason for this being the last of her books to use the format, it was a curious work Lady Susan carries several unique elements not the least is the nature of the protagonist, Lady Susan She is a dark, manipulative woman who still manages to coax the reader into laughing with her and enjoying her outrageous exploits I found her so very quotable I also found that this darker, dangerous andtitillating story showcased the author s repertoire to be wider than her published novels would indicate Lady Susan felt like a prototype of such sparkling, witty heroines as Elizabeth Bennet, Emma Woodhouse, Marianne Dashwood, and Mary Crawford The plot isn t as snappy as the later novels and that epilogue was a rushed piece, but I am slightly awed that a young, sheltered lady of twenty wrote it since it only hurts by comparison to her later novels and not to literature in general.This was my first turn at the unfinished The Watsons Oh my heart sorrows a bit not to have the completed story The set up was a good, strong one and promised an engaging story with Emma Watson the heroine raised apart from her family and used togenteel circumstances now back in their midst and unsure of her future She is the interest of a high lord and a country clergyman Her inferior family and quirky local characters make for some good humor even if Emma s situation is sobering Yes, drat, I wantedAt least, there was the note appended to the end sharing what Cassandra knew of how her sister planned to finish the story.Now, on to another unfinished piece, but this one, sadly, was unfinished by the death of the author I would have enjoyed knowing where she was taking this one after the initial set up I always picture Sanditon as Austen s version of the summer read since it is a vacation health resort sort of town The characters introduced are fun and quirky like I enjoy in a small town village setting The heroine was a moderately engaging one, but it was Mr Parker that kept me interested Ah, but again, I am sad not to have all the story.All in all, this was a satisfying collection I enjoyed the introduction, the three short pieces by Jane Austen and found the footnotes explanations very helpful I would definitely recommend this annotated version to other readers who want to gain some enjoyment and understanding beyond the actual stories.In switching versions of the book mid stream, I lost my earlier quote notes so I copied them and am putting them here 5 3 page 47 22.0% Where pride vanity unite there can be no dissimulation worthy notice, and Miss Vernon shall be consigned to unrelenting

    I reviewed each of these separately on my blog Lady Susan is a very short novel less than 100 pages by Jane Austen, considered one of her minor works It was likely written in 1793 or 1794, but it was not published until after her death Lady Susan is an epistolary novel, and it s the only novel I ve read by Austen with a horrid heroine but that s what makes her so interesting.Lady Susan Vernon is a recent widow who had an affair with a married man, whose wife s jealousy, along with her I reviewed each of these separately on my blog Lady Susan is a very short novel less than 100 pages by Jane Austen, considered one of her minor works It was likely written in 1793 or 1794, but it was not published until after her death Lady Susan is an epistolary novel, and it s the only novel I ve read by Austen with a horrid heroine but that s what makes her so interesting.Lady Susan Vernon is a recent widow who had an affair with a married man, whose wife s jealousy, along with her efforts to find a husband for her daughter, have prompted her to flee and stay with her brother in law and his wife Lady Susan is a very selfish person who acts horribly toward her daughter, Frederica, who refuses to marry the man her mother has chosen for her In addition to stringing along Manwaring, the man with whom she had the affair, Lady Susan sets her sights on her sister in law s brother, Reginald, much to Mrs Vernon s dismay While Lady Susan s close friend, Mrs Johnson, indulges her despite the fact that her husband wants her to end their relationship, Mrs Vernon sees Lady Susan for who she is and takes pity on Frederica.I enjoyed Lady Susan and its overly dramatic characters, but the limitations of the epistolary novel are evident There is little character development, and the primary voices in the book are Lady Susan s and Mrs Vernon s, though a few minor characters chime in here and there Because the book is written in letters, the conversations and actions are being retold after they happened, and they lose some of their immediacy.Still, Lady Susan is highly entertaining I found it interesting how Austen put a woman in the role of a shameless adulterer, though Lady Susan s seeking another husband with a fortune is similar to the storylines in herwell known novels However, what s different and intriguing is that Lady Susan is much older than the men she hopes to attract And while I couldn t like her or have much sympathy for her in the end, she certainly was amusing Another must read for Austen fans Review posted on Diary of an EccentricThe Watsons is a fragment of a novel written by Jane Austen in 1804 and is believed to be the only work written by Austen when she lived in Bath The introduction to this edition of three of Austen s minor works speculates on why she didn t finish it, but in my opinion, The Watsons is similar to Pride and Prejudice in many ways, and her heroine, Emma Watson, has characteristics of her other heroines.Emma was living away from her family with an aunt who could better provide for her, but when her aunt marries, she is forced to return home to her widowed father and siblings The 45 page fragment is mainly an introduction to the characters and covers Emma s introduction into society through the Edwards family, who are friends of the Watsons Some of the characters we meet, in addition to the Edwards family, are Elizabeth Watson, Emma s older sister Tom Musgrave, who flirts with all the eligible young women and seems to want to inflate his social status by riding the coattails of Lord Osborne Mr Howard, a clergyman who catches Emma s eye at a ball and Lord Osborne, who is attracted to Emma.The Watsons are the poorest family seen in a work by Austen, or at least among her main characters, with Elizabeth caring for their sickly father and handling some domestic tasks As such, the need for the four sisters to marry and for at least one of them to marry well is a main theme of the book But whereas Elizabeth has resigned herself to the fact that the love of her life has married another and she has lowered her standards for marriage as a result, Emma isromantic and insists she would not marry a man she didn t love regardless of his fortune.I really enjoyed The Watsons and was sad to see it end It had so much potential, and had it been completed, it could have been a wonderful novel While I didn t get to know her as well as I would have liked, Emma was a delightful character I especially loved the scene at the ball where she asks 10 year old Charles Blake, the nephew of Mr Howard, to dance after Miss Osborne promised him before the ball that she would dance with him, then decided to dance with someone else I would have loved to see Mr Howard and Lord Osborne compete to win Emma s heart, and I would have loved to see who would have become the scoundrel of the novel.While many readers would avoid reading a fragment because of its abrupt ending, The Watsons didn t leave me entirely unsatisfied Austen told her sister, Cassandra, what she d planned for her characters, and this information is given at the end of the fragment as a conclusion of sorts If you re like me and want to read anything and everything by Austen, then I highly recommend The Watsons As can be expected, her wit is interlaced with entertaining characters and social commentary.Review posted on Diary of an EccentricJane Austen was writing Sanditon when she fell ill, beginning the manuscript on January 17, 1817, ending chapter 12 on March 18, 1817, and dying on July 18, 1817, at the age of 41 without having finished it It s sad that we ll never know Austen s plans for her characters, an eccentric bunch that I found very amusing.Sanditon opens with a carriage accident Mr Thomas Parker, intent on finding a doctor for Sanditon the fishing village he hopes to turn into a bustling seaside resort has driven the carriage on an impassible road And come to find out, he and his wife are in the wrong Willingden the Willingden without a doctor The Parkers are taken in by the Heywoods so Mr Parker can recover from a twisted ankle, and the new friendship prompts the Parkers to take the young Charlotte Heywood the likely heroine of the novel to see the progress being made in Sanditon.In Sanditon, Charlotte meets a host of entertaining people, including Lady Denham, a twice married woman the first time for money, the second time for a title reminiscent of Lady Catherine in Pride and Prejudice and Thomas Parker s partner in developing Sanditon Sir Edward Denham, who rambles on about poetry and novels and views himself as a seducer of women Diana, Susan, and Arthur Parker, Thomas hypochondriac siblings and Sydney Parker, Thomas fashionable younger brother who probably would have emerged as the hero Austen was brilliant when it came to providing humorous social commentary In this novel, she juxtaposes characters who favor the old way with characters who favor development and showcases hypochondriacs alongside those whose health actually is poor enough to benefit from the seaside air.Sanditon had the potential to be a great novel Charlotte could have been as wise and strong a heroine as Elizabeth Bennett in Pride and Prejudice Sydney Parker hardly makes an appearance, so who knows whether he would have given Mr Darcy a run for his money Some of the characters were so exaggerated and ridiculous Sir Edward and Diana, in particular that I nearly laughed out loud, and to be honest, when I got to the end of chapter 12 and the book ended abruptly, I was sad I d grown attached to these characters in just a handful of pages, and the story hadn t been developed enough for me to guess how things might have played out I m glad I knew in advance that the novel was unfinished, and I m not sorry I read it In fact, I think it is a worthwhile read for any Austen fan.Review posted on Diary of an Eccentric
