The poetry of Jane Austen and the Austen family( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As in many households in the late eighteenth century, writing verses was a pastime with the Austen family, and the composition of ingenious riddles and charades provided a source of lively entertainment. This volume of verses by Jane Austen and her family contains all the known poems by Jane herself as well as a selection of work by her mother, her sister Cassandra, four of her brothers, her uncle James, her nieces Anna and Fanny, her nephew James Edward and other relatives. David Selwyn provides an introduction and full explanatory notes; his transcriptions, taken from autograph manuscripts or from the earliest copies, are precise in terms of spelling punctuation and layout

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As we enter the third millennium, Jane Austen is more popular than ever. Not only her six novels, which have been dramatised, televised and filmed, but her letters and poems are alive and well. Her style, her distinctive sensibility and her no-nonsense but subtle sense of character and motive, keep her a the heart of our concerns. Maggie Lane and David Selwyn bring together in this celebration over a century of individual testimony to the abiding value of Jane Austen. They include, too, a few dissenting voices. Other novelists, teachers, politicians, actors and general readers share our passion for the 'comedian' (Bruce Chatwin), the 'unpretentious philosopher' (Lord David Cecil), the 'calm gaze' (David Kossoff), the 'genius' (Barbara Pym) that she was. There is nothing tame about her mannerly world; as W.H. Auden says, 'Beside her Joyce seems innocent as grass.' -- Book cover
