These annotations provide historical background on the society and customs depicted in the novel, point out connections between its incidents and Jane Austen's own life, analyze the techniques and themes of the author, and define the many words in the novel that have become archaic or have shifted their meaning since the time it was published. The book also includes illustrations related to the period, as well as an introduction discussing the novel's overall structure, a chronology laying out the precise sequence of events in the story, and maps showing all the places mentioned in the text.
 

About Jane Austen

See more books from this Author
One of England’s most beloved authors, Jane Austen wrote such classic novels as Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, and Northanger Abbey. Published anonymously during her life, Austen’s work was renowned for its realism, humour, and commentary on English social rites and society at the time. Austen’s writing was supported by her family, particularly by her brother, Henry, and sister, Cassandra, who is believed to have destroyed, at Austen’s request, her personal correspondence after Austen’s death in 1817. Austen’s authorship was revealed by her nephew in A Memoir of Jane Austen, published in 1869, and the literary value of her work has since been recognized by scholars around the world.

A mammoth edition, including the novel, illustrations, maps, a chronology, and bibliography, but mostly thousands of annotations that run the gamut from revealing to ridiculous.
