'Another world must be unfurled, Another language known'
Best known - and beloved - for her highly popular novels including Pride and Prejudice, Emma and Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austen was also an accomplished, and often witty, poet:
'I am going to have my dinner, after which I shan't be thinner'
This collection, which also includes poems by the poets she herself admired, sheds light not only on Jane Austen the writer, but on the themes that are woven through her bestselling novels. Satirical, humorous and ironical, they will resonate both with readers who love her novels, and newcomers alike.
'When stretched out on one's bed with a fierce throbbing head ... how little one cares for the grandest affairs'
'I am in a dilemma, for want of an Emma'
