About the Book: Marriage
Why do we set so much store by marriage? Jane Austen was fascinated by this
question, subjecting it to her forensic eye and wonderfully ironic wit again and
again. Here are stolen glances and nervous advances, meddling parents and
self-important cousins, society whisperings and the fluttering hearts of young
lovers. All of them have their own views and expectations of marriage, and
Austens are the wisest of all.
Selected from the novels Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Northanger
Abbey and Persuasion by Jane Austen.
