Launching a major new paperback series- Penguin English Library
Jane Austen (1775-1817) is one of English literature's greatest and most widely-read writers - one of the four 'great English novelists' according to F. R. Leavis (along with George Eliot, Henry James and Joseph Conrad). Her novels, both romantic fiction and acerbic social commentary, include Sense & Sensibility, Pride & Prejudice, Emma, Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey. Persuasion was her last completed novel, published posthumously in 1818. All six titles are published in the Penguin English Library.
