The last novel written by Jane Austen, "Persuasion" revolves around a young Englishwoman named Anne Elliot and her family who are forced to move into a smaller house in order to ease their debt. They rent their house to an Admiral and his wife, whose brother turns out to have been engaged to Anne seven years previous. The scene is set for humorous situations and the promise of a rekindling of old flames. Jane Austen (1775 - 1817) was an English author known primarily for her novels, which critique the 18th century English upper classes and contemporary novels of sensibility. Her use of irony coupled with biting social commentary and realism have led to her wide acclaim amongst scholars and critics, her work contributing to the transition to 19th-century literary realism. Other notable works by this author include: "Sense and Sensibility" (1811), "Pride and Prejudice" (1813), and "Mansfield Park" (1814). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
