Love and Friendship (aka 'Love and Freindship') | [Jane Austen]

Love and Friendship (aka 'Love and Freindship')

Jane Austen wrote Love and Friendship (originally spelled Love and Freindship [sic]) when she was just 14 years old. The three notebooks that contain her early works, including this story, are currently on display at the Bodleian Library and the British Museum. Taking the form as letters written by the heroine to the daughter of her friend, this story resembles a fairy tale that lampoons the conventions of romantic stories at the time.

Audible Editor Reviews

Like the Brontë sisters, Jane Austen wrote extensive juvenilia that was published and embraced by the general public after the author attained literary fame. Austen wrote Love and Freindship when she was only 14 years old, hence the typo in the title. The epistolary novel betrays the wit and precociousness of the young Austen, who sought to amuse her family by parodying the conventions of the romantic novels that helped comprise her childhood library. Joanna Daniell brings a high-class, archly enunciated diction to her performance that complements the entertaining, over-the-top material that surely had the entire Austen clan rolling on the floor in laughter.
