Traduzione di Milena Finazzi
Sono qui raccolti i più dissacranti inediti giovanili dell’autrice, brevi racconti popolati di ubriaconi, avvelenatori ed evasi, scritti per il divertimento della famiglia. La bella Cassandra (1788), che per ironia condivide il nome con la maggiore delle sorelle Austen, è una giovane donna che si lancia nel mondo per fare fortuna e la cui storia si trasforma in una parodia dei romanzi sentimentali e gotici molto apprezzati all’epoca.
Di Jane Austen (1775-1817) nel catalogo dei Grandi Libri Garzanti: L’Abbazia di Northanger, Emma, Mansfield Park, Orgoglio e pregiudizio, Ragione e sentimento, Persuasione.

My dear young Miss Austen, Comparing your teenage bravado to your later masterpieces is hardly a meaningful task. But as a teacher, working with teenage text production each day, I would like to express my gratitude to you, young aspiring author, for giving me an afternoon of complete delight! If yo Leggi tutto
Such a delightful read - I love Jane Austen's juvenilia; it is absolutely hilarious.

She lived from the 18th to the 19th Century in England and gained little fame in her lifetime for her works, having published them originally anonymous Leggi tutto

Skimmed through most of this because I found it quite boring to be honest!
I thought it was very interesting to read something Jane Austen wrote as a teenager. It wasn't anything special, but it was a nice and quick read. I loved how Penguin decided against removing the spelling mistakes that she must've made when she wrote these stories. It also helped me understand why i Leggi tutto
This book was read for the #readwomen month. This should only be read by hardcore fans of Austen who are okay with being utterly disappointed. I hated everything about it, it is one of the worst things I have ever read, I am extremely glad I will never again read any of her Juvenilia. Thank the heav Leggi tutto
