Jane Austen: Lady Susan, The Watsons, and Sanditon

SKU: BODS-102488

The incomplete fictions collected here are the novels and other works that Jane Austen did not publish.

The earliest story follows Lady Susan, a sexual predator and a master of manipulation with villainous tendencies. The Watsons follows a tale of riches to rags, whereby the formerly rich Watsons languish in a forgotten village, anticipating suitors that never arrive. Sanditon is a satirical tale on the niche marketing campaign waged by investors on the latest South Coast resort. Experimental and bold, these unfinished works extend beyond our typical expectations for a Jane Austen novel.

This compendium collates Austen's unpublished works, written from her late teens to the year she died, at aged forty-one. From adult fiction, poetry among other related writings, this collection calls into question our modern image of the romantic novelist and reveal the development of her writing style.
