About the Author

Jane Austen's life is striking for the contrast between the great works she wrote in secret and the outward appearance of being quite dull and ordinary. Austen was born in the small English town of Steventon in Hampshire, and educated at home by her clergyman father. She was deeply devoted to her mostrar mais family. For a short time, the Austens lived in the resort city of Bath, but when her father died, they returned to Steventon, where Austen lived until her death at the age of 41. Austen was drawn to literature early, she began writing novels that satirized both the writers and the manners of the 1790's. Her sharp sense of humor and keen eye for the ridiculous in human behavior gave her works lasting appeal. She is at her best in such books as Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814), and Emma (1816), in which she examines and often ridicules the behavior of small groups of middle-class characters. Austen relies heavily on conversations among her characters to reveal their personalities, and at times her novels read almost like plays. Several of them have, in fact, been made into films. She is considered to be one of the most beloved British authors. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Pequena biografia
From the Jane Austen Society of North America: Jane Austen, one of England’s foremost novelists, was never publicly acknowledged as a writer during her lifetime. Born at Steventon Rectory in Hampshire, the 7th child of a country clergyman and his wife, she was primarily educated at home, benefiting from her father’s extensive library and the schoolroom atmosphere created by Mr. Austen’s live-in pupils. Her closest friend was her only sister, Cassandra, almost three years her senior.

Though Austen lived a quiet life, she had unusual access to the greater world, primarily through her brothers. On extended visits to Godmersham, her brother Edward’s estate in Kent, Austen and her sister took part in the privileged life of the landed gentry, which is reflected in all her fiction. In 1811, at the age of 35, she published Sense and Sensibility, which identified the author only as "a Lady." Pride and Prejudice followed in 1813, Mansfield Park in 1814, and Emma in 1815. Jane Austen died at age 41 and was buried in Winchester Cathedral. Interestingly, her gravestone, which is visited by hundreds of admirers each year, does not even mention that she was an author.

Pride and Prejudice em Someone explain it to me... (Março 2010)


At twenty-­seven, Anne Elliot is no longer young and has few romantic prospects. Eight years earlier, she had been persuaded by her friend Lady Russell to break off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth, a handsome naval captain with neither fortune nor rank. What happens when they encounter each other again is movingly told in Jane Austen's last completed novel. Set in the fashionable societies of Lyme Regis and Bath, Persuasion is a brilliant satire of vanity and pretension, but, above all, it is a love story tinged with the heartache of missed opportunities.… (mais)

no corpo de obra de Austen, não se equipara a Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility,
Emma, Persuasion , Mansfield Park e representa uma obra menor, como Lady Susan
jgcorrea | outras 414 resenhas | Sep 12, 2022 |
Às vezes semelhante às de “Emma”, a persuasão do título é divertida , impregnada dos profundos anseios de sua heroína, Anne Elliot, suficientemente ousada e consistente com as flagrantes liberdades tomadas pela protagonista para se safar delas. Também ajuda o espírito irreprimível e o irreverente senso de ironia na incandescente heroína.
Mas Persuasão não sabe bem aonde aportar. É um romance de época, calmo, sutil e sentimental, que quer fazer os corações de seu público vibrarem enquanto suspiram com os olhares de desejo compartilhados entre Anne e seu pretendente. Prova apenas, mais uma vez, que a veneração moderna a Jane Austen como a santa padroeira da comédia romântica é também e no fundo um ato de simplificação. Austen pode ser imortal, mas não é inesgotável; talvez seja hora de deixá-la descansar em paz e ler outras histórias de outras imortais como, p.ex. Mary Shelley, Mrs Gaskell, George Sand.… (mais)

Já se perguntou qual personagem de Razão e Sensibilidade você é? (A propósito, sou o inabalável Coronel Brandon) A espirituosa Marianne? a sensata Elinor? o gago, mas de bom coração, Edward? Ou o imprudente Willoughby ?
Mas o principal conflito em Razão e Sensibilidade está, sem dúvida, tão distante de nós quanto a sociedade em que é retratado. Uma apreciação do que Jane Austen realmente narra envolve em primeiro lugar um conhecimento das convenções sociais, literárias e linguísticas daquela época. Não podemos enxergar as personagens sem um reconhecimento da ordem social onde estão enraizadas. Até mesmo depois de terem decaído socialmente, as irmãs Elinor e Marianne Dashwood continuam a manter duas criadas e um empregado; e quando Austen se refere a “trabalho”, refere-se apenas a costura. Não havia autopiedade no fato de ser pobre – elas seguiam os padrões de sua classe social – o que hoje em dia esquerdistas chamam de lazer, indolência, elitismo etc.
Mas, em suma, qual seria a relação entre razão e sensibilidade? Elas são complementares e necessárias, e não opostas e excludentes. Aprendemos quando percebemos o significado do que estamos aprendendo, trabalhamos melhor quando conseguimos estabelecer uma ligação afetiva com nosso trabalho. E sempre lembrando: Sensus ergo Passio, ou ¨Sense therefore Sensibility¨, isto é, decidir racionalmente, para poder viver emocionalmente. Qual, a propósito, é o final do romance ? Marianne se afeiçoa ao Coronel Brandon, casam-se e tornam-se o retrato da felicidade, enquanto Lucy Steele foge com Robert Ferrars logo que ele toma posse da propriedade que a mãe lhe deu.
