Post Austen, Jane: Letters. v1, 7 Mar 2008

Letters of Jane Austen, edited, with an introduction and critical remarks, by Edward, Lord Brabourne.

This edition of Jane Austen's letters was edited by Jane Austen's great-nephew Edward Hugessen Knatchbull-Hugessen (the first Baron Brabourne, 1829-1893), and was published in 1884. It's neither complete (about two thirds of the letters now known to have survived are included), nor are the texts of the letters necessarily always transcribed with minute scholarly fidelity, but it's out of copyright, and includes many annotations and interesting comments on the letters.

There are some wonderful passages in these letters. One of my favourites is:

Walter Scott has no business to write novels, especially good ones. It is not fair. He has fame and profit enough as a poet, and should not be taking the bread out of the mouths of other people.

Enjoy!

Thanks, Harry! This is great. I tried to give you some Karma but it wouldn't let me...

RonPrice, you should take a look at our "user poetry" thread (and copy your own poem there).
