    Northanger Abbey (First Avenue Classics) Door: Jane Austen,

    Catherine Morland is obsessed with the romantic adventures and supernatural terrors of Gothic novels. She dreams of being a heroine in such a book. When she is invited to spend several weeks at her friend Henry Tilney's family home—Northanger Abbey—Catherine envisions herself exploring crumbling corridors and shadowy passages. She is disappointed to discover that the abbey is bright and comfortably modern. But could there still be secrets lurking behind its walls? Why has no one entered the late Mrs. Tilney's room since her death? Is there a mystery to uncover at Northanger Abbey . . . or is Catherine letting her imagination run wild?

    Vernunft und Gefühl: Roman (German Edition) Door: Jane Austen,

    Jane Austen starb vor 200 Jahren, doch ihre Werke werden inniger geliebt denn je. Schließlich weiß bis heute niemand klüger über die komplizierten Herzensangelegenheiten zwischen Männern und Frauen zu schreiben als die scharfsinnige Britin. In ihrem Roman «Vernunft und Gefühl» verhandelt sie so unterhaltsam wie erhellend die Suche nach dem Menschen fürs Leben. Temperamentvoll und leidenschaftlich, ist Marianne Dashwood das genaue Gegenteil ihrer älteren Schwester, der beherrschten und vernünftigen Elinor. Dass sich Marianne Hals über Kopf und natürlich unglücklich in den begehrten Frauenschwarm John Willoughby verliebt, erstaunt daher niemanden. Aber auch Elinor erlebt mit dem Mann ihres Herzens eine böse Überraschung, denn «ihr» Edward Ferrars hat einer anderen die Ehe versprochen. Gemeinsam lernen die ungleichen Schwestern mit ihrer Enttäuschung zu leben und nach einer dramatischen Zuspitzung der Ereignisse den Standpunkt der jeweils anderen besser zu verstehen. In der Neuübersetzung von Andrea Ott erstrahlen geschli ener Witz und lebendige Dialoge dieser beliebten Klassikerin in frischem Glanz.

    Pride and Prejudice Door: Jane Austen,

    Mrs. Bennet has but one aim in life: to find a good match for each of her five daughters. Mr. Bennet, a mild and indolent man given to witty cynicisms, refuses to take this vulgar project seriously; he ridicules his wife instead of giving her support in her schemes. One of the daughters, Elizabeth, becomes prejudiced against her future suitor, Darcy, because of his arrogance and his uncalled-for interference with his friend Bingley’s courtship of her sister Jane. In interfering with Jane and Bingley, Darcy is influence by Mrs. Bennet’s undisguised husband-hunt and her impropriety in general; he mistakenly believes that Jane is only seeking an advantageous match and that her feelings are not sincere. In spite of his disapproval of the Bennet family. Darcy cannot keep himself from falling in love with Elizabeth, and he proposes to her. The tone of the proposal (it is evident that his love for Elizabeth is a blow to his pride) and her own prejudice cause Elizabeth to coldly reject him...

    Pride and Prejudice is a novel by Jane Austen, first published in 1813. The story follows the main character, Elizabeth Bennet, as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of the British Regency. Elizabeth is the second of five daughters of a country gentleman, Mr Bennet, living in Longbourn.The novel is set in England in the early 19th century and tells the story of Mr and Mrs Bennet's five unmarried daughters after two gentlemen have moved into their neighbourhood: the rich and eligible Mr Bingley, and his status-conscious friend, the even richer and more eligible Mr Darcy. While Bingley takes an immediate liking to the eldest Bennet daughter, Jane, Darcy is disdainful of local society and repeatedly clashes with the Bennets' lively second daughter, Elizabeth.Pride and Prejudice retains a fascination for modern readers, continuing near the top of lists of "most loved books". It has become one of the most popular novels in English literature, selling over 20 million copies, and receives considerable attention from literary scholars. Likewise, it has paved the way for archetypes that abound in many contemporary literature of our time.

    Pride And Prejudice Door: Jane Austen,

    Pride And Prejudice, the story of Mrs. Bennet's attempts to marry off her five daughters is one of the best-loved and most enduring classics in English literature. Excitement fizzes through the Bennet household at Longbourn in Hertfordshire when young, eligible Mr. Charles Bingley rents the fine house nearby. He may have sisters, but he also has male friends, and one of these—the haughty, and even wealthier, Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy—irks the vivacious Elizabeth Bennet, the second of the Bennet girls. She annoys him. Which is how we know they must one day marry. The romantic clash between the opinionated Elizabeth and Darcy is a splendid rendition of civilized sparring. As the characters dance a delicate quadrille of flirtation and intrigue, Jane Austen's radiantly caustic wit and keen observation sparkle.
