With handsome rich men and ladies of leisure fluttering their eyelids trying to catch their attention, The Three Sisters reads like a humorous trial run for Pride and Prejudice . Told via correspondence, this is in fact a tale of a single man, Mr. Watts, who is in possession of a good fortune and is in want of a wife. Mrs. Stanhope is the mother of a family of girls who is very much in want of a son-in-law. And the girls? Despite one of them being the happiest creature on the planet , they aren’t actually all that happy at all.This satirical narrative of courtship and self-interest by the young Jane Austen is a must for any fan of the modern Chick-Lit novel or Rom-Com film. As an extra treat, this edition includes four additional writings from Jane Austen, making this essential reading for any Austen fan or study. These additional pieces include: •t A Fragment written to inculcate the practice of Virtue •t A beautiful description of the different effects of sensibility on different minds •t The Generous Curate: A moral Tale, setting forth the Advantages of being Generous and a Curate. •t Ode to Pity Jane Austen (1775-1817) is one of the most beloved British writers of all time. During her short life, she published six novels: ‘Sense and Sensibility’, ‘Pride and Prejudice’, ‘Mansfield Park’, ‘Emma’, ‘Northanger Abbey’ and ‘Persuasion’, that are all considered as literary classics today. Her writing is full of sharp observations on the society in which she evolved, as well as ripe with timeless irony, and a solid dose of humour. She has created immortal characters that have inspired countless authors, novels, and movies such as Bridget Jones and Clueless .The most notable film adapted from a Jane Austen novel is Pride and Prejudice from 2005 starring Keira Knightley (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Matthew Macfadyen.
