Emma Watson: Jane Austen's "The Watsons" completed (większy format)Joan Aiken
It has always been a source of great frustration to Janeites that Jane Austen abandoned "The Watsons" after only seventeen and a half thousand words. It is, as Margaret Drabble says, a "tantalising, delightful and highly accomplished fragment, which must surely haved proved the equal of her other six novels had she finished it".
Now Joan Aiken gives us the fourth of her "Jane Austen entertainments", following "Mansfield Revisited", "Jane Fairfax" and "Eliza's Daughter".
Emma, adopted by her aunt after the death of her mother, has rejoined her ailing father and her favourite sister Elizabeth at the age of nineteen. Her stuffy brother Robert is living in Croydon with his grasping wife; her shrewish sister Penelope looks to have a good match; her brother Sam is trying to make his way as a doctor; and Emma's immediate elder Margaret fancies herself in love with Tom Musgrave.
