"The fact that she wrote comparatively little and that that little is almost always of the highest quality has resulted in the unique distinction which her reputation now enjoys, that she is the only author of her period whose works can be read, and are read, today with delight in their entirety" (Baugh et al., 1206). Includes Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park and Persuasion. Austen's novels were first published 1811-18. The Winchester edition of Austen's novels was first published in 1898. See Keynes 36.
