Persuasion (Jane Austen Collection) Summary

Persuasion (Jane Austen Collection) by Jane Austen

Jane Austen's Persuasion is now available in an exclusive collector's edition featuring a delicate laser-cut jacket on a textured book with foil stamping and ribbon marker, ideal for fiction lovers and book collectors alike.

The Persuasion Jane Austen Collection Edition:

  • Presents Jane Austen's final fully completed novel, viewed by many literary scholars as her most maturely written work; its 1817 posthumous publication helped established Austen's iconic place in literature's pantheon of great writers
  • Explores such important themes as social mobility, class rigidity, the gender-centric skills required to navigate between public life and domestic life, and the ramifications of remaining true to one's convictions vs being open to the suggestions of others
  • Is ideal for special-edition book collectors, Jane Austen aficionados, fans of literary fiction and classic literature, and people who love both the book and the movies it inspires

Whether you're buying this as a gift or for yourself, this remarkable limited edition features:

  • Beautiful hardcover with a distinctive one-of-a-kind, high-end/high-treatment laser-cut jacket, perfect for standing out on any discerning fiction lover's bookshelf
  • Decorative interior pages featuring pull quotes distributed throughout
  • Part of a 6-volume Jane Austen series including Northanger Abbey, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, and Emma

At twenty-seven, Anne Elliot is no longer considered young enough for worthy 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 transpires when they encounter each other again is movingly told in Jane Austen's last completed novel. A brilliant satire of vanity and pretension, Persuasion is, above all, a love story tinged with the heartache of missed opportunities.

Persuasion by Jane Austen is one of six titles completing the Jane Austen collection, which includes Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, and Northanger Abbey.
