簡奧斯丁 Jane  Austen 傲慢與偏見_圖文

Jane Austen’s Works ?
One of the most widely read writers in English literature

? “Shakespeare has had neither equal or second. But among the writers who, in the point which we have noticed, have approached nearest to the manner of the great master, we have no hesitation in placing Jane Austen, a woman of whom England is justly proud.” ——Thomas Babington Macaulay (《英國 史》) ? “Miss Austen understood the smallness of life to perfection. She was a great artist, equal in her small sphere to Shakespeare...” ——Alfred Tennyson( 《悼念》) ? “Emma Woodhouse and Anne Elliot give us as great an impression of ?passion?—that celebrated quality—as the ladies of G. Sand and Balzac.” ——Henry James(《鴿翼》)

? “We can hardly bear to recall the emotions of twenty or fifteen years ago, hardly at all, whereas we respond again quite vividly to the emotions of Jane Austen or Dickens, nearly a hundred years ago.” ——D. H. Lawrence (《查泰萊夫人的情人》)
? “The most perfect artist among women, the writer whose books are immortal, died “just as she was beginning to feel confidence in her own success.” ——Virginia Woolf( 《戴洛維夫人》) When Shakespeare and Dickens have sunk into venerability, Austen, on the other hand, has become our contemporary.

? Northanger Abbey (1818) ? Persuasion (1818)

? A work of romantic fiction, Sense and Sensibility is set in southwest England between 1792 and 1797,and portrays the life and loves of the Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne.

The story follows the main character Elizabeth Bennet as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of early 19th-century England. Elizabeth is the second of five daughters of a country gentleman living near the fictional town of Meryton in Hertfordshire, near London.

Before she began the novel, Austen wrote, "I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like." In the very first sentence she introduces the title character as "Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich." Emma, however, is also rather spoiled, headstrong, and self-satisfied; she greatly overestimates her own matchmaking abilities; she is blind to the dangers of meddling in other people's lives, and her imagination and perceptions often lead her astray.
