Written in the final year before Austen’s death, when she was gravely ill, ‘Sanditon’ affords a glimpse of the ultimate creative powers and preoccupations of one of the greatest figures in English literature.
A stunning new Clothbound Classics edition of Jane Austen's tantalizing final work - set to be a major Andrew Davies ITV adaptation this autumn
Written in the last months of Austen's life, Sanditon features a glorious cast of hypochondriacs and speculators in a newly established seaside resort, and shows the author contemplating a changing society with scepticism and amusement. It tells the story of Charlotte Heywood, who is transported by a chance accident from her rural hometown to Sanditon, where she is exposed to the intrigues and dalliances of a small town - and encounters the intriguingly handsome Sidney Parker.
This edition also includes the early epistolary novel Lady Susan and the delightful fragment The Watsons.
