The Erotic Tales of Jane Austen. A recently discovered cache of her long-suppressed writings. More
A recently discovered cache of Jane Austen’s writings cast a new and salacious light on her work. The papers were found hidden in the water closet at Steventon, the Austen home in Hampshire.
Jane Austen, always the astute observer of human nature, is at her best here, whether dispensing marital advice, conceiving pre-Freudian theories of repression, or concocting fanciful adventure stories.
The explicit and detailed anatomical descriptions though surprising, are rendered in the polite language one would expect of Miss Austen.
Included in this volume are expurgated tracts from the novel “Emma” as well as unpublished short stories of Emma Woodhouse and her governess Miss Taylor.
Included are: A liason with a famous composer A detective story A precursor to Jules Verne Culinary uses of sheep intestines A cure for artistic behaviour
