Bite-Size Jane Austen
Sense and Sensibility from One of England's Greatest Writers
Jane Austen's novels are filled with wide-ranging commentary from all parts of life. Her sharp-witted and intelligent characters have provided us with memorable quotes time and time again.
Finally Austen's sense and sensibility has been compiled in one compact book. In Bite-Size Jane Austen we get her thoughts and words on society, men and women, the arts and writing, business and politics, England, family matters and on the human condition.
Bite-Size Jane Austen is the fifth book in the highly successful series. Arranged into eight wide-ranging chapters and many sub-chapters, finding the perfect quote for the perfect situation is simple.
On literature and poetry:
"Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery. I quit such odious subjects as soon as I can."
On men and women:
"One half the world cannot understand the pleasures of the other."
On writing novels:
"An artist cannot do anything slovenly."
