Description of the book "The Wit and Wisdom of Jane Austen":
Though Jane Austen had little contact with society outside her extended family, and none whatsoever with London literary life, her novels have long been admired for their sharp - indeed wicked - social observations, their satirical wit, the brilliance of the author's comic realism, and her sure grasp of human nature.
The Wit and Wisdom of Jane Austen, is an absorbing collection of her sharpest, most profound and amusing observations - on human nature, money, marriage, life, and society - taken from her novels and her extremely entertaining letters. She also muses on romantic innocence, self-delusion, gullibility, greed, snobbery, rudeness, arrogance, obsequiousness, and other PDF subjects. Above all her comments center on the antics of those seeking well-connected and well-appointed husbands, and their efforts to elbow out their less "suitable" rivals.
Perfect for browsing and highly quotable, this beautifully decorated volume will delight Austen devotees, as well as readers less familiar with her life and work.
