Jane Austen's Sanditon: A Village by the Sea
When Jane Austen died in 1817, she left behind 120 pages of manuscript that would eventually be published as Sanditon. Praised by some critics and condemned by others, this final effort by the great English writer has for the most part been overlooked in favor of the novels that were published during her lifetime and shortly after her death. For the first time, an entire book is devoted to examining this fragment to establish it as Jane Austen's potential masterpiece. With a new setting and a greater range of characters than found in earlier works, this novel composed during the last months of her short life, if completed, would at the same time have continued her series of magnificent novels and created new possibilities for novels to come.
