Early stories tell of postponed weddings, shallow friends, a reluctant bride, and a duke's tragic decline

Charlotte Brontë's appetite was for romantic adventure and, with her .

Charlotte Brontë's appetite was for romantic adventure and, with her brother Branwell, she created the fabulous kingdom of Angria. Given the fame of Jane Austen's writings as well as Jane Eyre, it is little surprise that the childhood works of the authors (hereafter abbreviated as JA and CB so that I don't have to continually copy out the umlaut on Charlotte's last name) have been collected here so that readers can trace the development of both authors from their.

Jane Austen's life is striking for the contrast between the great works she wrote in secret and the outward appearance of being quite dull and ordinary. Austen was born in the small English town of Steventon in Hampshire, and educated at home by her clergyman father. She was deeply devoted to her family. She is at her best in such books as Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814), and Emma (1816), in which she examines and often ridicules the behavior of small groups of middle-class characters. Charlotte Bronte, the third of six children, was born April 21, 1816, to the Reverend Patrick Bronte and Maria Branwell Bronte in Yorkshire, England.

Jane Austen is pretty surely damaged by this comparison : much as English novels are by comparison with French. It would appear that Charlotte Brontë exceeds Jane Austen both in ability and sensibilities even from an early age. The comparison of style in not in Austen's favor. Charlotte's poetry is as superior as her imagination. and characterizations. She makes Austen's results appear more comical than realistic: cut out characterizations.

Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Frances F. Beer. The Juvenilia of Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte" provides an amazing chance to read the early writings of these two great authors. Austen's juvenilia shows a progress from the fantastical, bizarre narratives like "Henry and Eliza", where characters go on wild adventures, closest relations go unrecognised, and romance and violence go hand-in-hand, through the mock-serious "Letters", to the more mature "Catherine, or the Bower"

It would appear that Charlotte Brontë exceeds Jane Austen both in ability and sensibilities even from an early ag. The two parts of this book differ greatly in reader appeal.

It would appear that Charlotte Brontë exceeds Jane Austen both in ability and sensibilities even from an early age. Charlotte's poetry is as superior as her imagination and characterizations. While packaging the juvenilia of two loved women authors together seems like a good idea, I think the actual works are not particularly compatible. Jane Austen fans will love the sprightly, unrestrained wit of her juvenilia; 'Love and Freindship' in particular is a delightful romp, wickedly satirising the 'novels of sensibility' popular at the time.

This volume includes the early writings of Charlotte Bronte and Jane Austen. Austen's work includes Frederic and Elfrida, Edgar and Emma and Amelia Webster while Bronte's includes Origins of Angria, The History of the Year, Two Romantic Tales and The Rivals. Penguin Books LTD. ISBN-10.

I love this book! It is wonderful -- sometimes comical -- to be able to see the juvenile talent of these two wonderful writers. A lot of fun to read!

The two parts of this book differ greatly in reader appeal. While packaging the juvenilia of two loved women authors together seems like a good idea, I think the actual works are not particularly compatible. Jane Austen fans will love the sprightly, unrestrained wit of her juvenilia; 'Love and Freindship' in particular is a delightful romp, wickedly satirising the 'novels of sensibility' popular at the time. In contrast, the Bronte stories, which all form part of a series set in a fantasy world created by Charlotte together with her brother Branwell, are obscure and turgid. No doubt this peek at her early writing would be invaluable to a Bronte scholar, but the average reader is likely to lose interest. Particularly in contrast to Austen's lightness and ease of touch, the Bronte works seem clumsy and confusing. Still, the volume is worth buying only for the section on Austen, which is as far as I can tell fairly complete and an absolute must-read for any Austen fan.

This was purchased as a gift. I am a lover of the classics, so it was wonderful to be able to enjoy getting a book that dove a little more into the background of the classic authors in their youths.
