I just learned that there is an annotated edition of Sense and Sensibility to be published in June 2011. I have the annotated P&P and it is amazing.
Awesome! I read the Annotated P&P and own the Annotated Persuasion. I will add this to my want list.
Thanks for alerting me to the existence of this series of annotated JA novels, which I had not seen before. After looking through the sample of the Persuasion edition, I think I shall like to buy all three. 'Emma' will apparently be published on 7 February 2012 (UK)
Oh, good! I was thinking I should reread Emma, since it was my first Austen and I didn't like it. I think I might have a different opinion now, and an annotated edition would just be perfect. Okay then, putting off my reread until 2012 (not far away, anyway!)
I actually found the Annotated Persuasion to be a disappointment. At least, enough of a disappointment to dissuade me from getting the other annotated novels.
Hmm, I have to admit I was excited to hear about the Annotated Persuasion, as I enjoyed the Annotated Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion is my second favorite of her novels. You give me pause, southernbooklady, but I know I won't be able to resist.
I'll look forward to the Annotated Sense and Sensibility and Annotated Emma (no touchstone yet), too.
There are some fun things in it, jnwelch. It wasn't money wasted, certainly. (Well, at all, really since the publisher sent it to me for review!). But I found the nature of the annotations to be somewhat puzzling--as frequently restating the text as adding to it. So for the fun stuff, you have to dig.
I did review it awhile ago here:
>7 Thank you. That is a witty and well done review. I'll leave it to my betters to decide whether or not to try the eel recipe!
Your insights will be helpful in reading the annotations. I'll try to gather up my patience, and also not get bogged down in the obvious.
By the way, you've brought back memories of when I assistant-managed an independent bookstore in New York City and managed two in Chicago. Happy days - I met my wife, a professional storyteller, at one of them.
