Wordsworth Classics covers a huge list of beloved works of literature in English
and translations. This growing series is rigorously updated, with scholarly
introductions and notes added to new titles.
Austen's last novel is the crowning achievement of her matchless career. Her
heroine, Anne Elliot, a woman of integrity, breeding and great depth of emotion,
stands in stark contrast to the brutality and hypocrisy of Regency England.
Includes a new Introduction by Margaret Drabble, famed novelist and editor of
The Oxford Companion to the English Language.
