Jane Austen's Works

 
Jane Austen wrote six novels that continue to captivate readers almost 200 years after her death:

  • Sense and Sensibility
  • Pride and Prejudice
  • Mansfield Park
  • Emma
  • Northanger Abbey
  • Persuasion

These novels, as well as her juvenilia and unfinished works, are available in numerous modern print and ebook editions. Her collected letters, which are also a source of entertainment and biographical information, are available in print in Jane Austen's Letters, edited by Deirdre Le Faye (Oxford University Press, 2011).
