|Persuasion narra la historia de una mujer madura, sensible y mespreciada, que as despues de haber rechazado al hombre que amaba, persuadida por un mal consejo, ve como este reaparece en su vida, rico y horable pero aun despechado. Una mujer que quiza por primera vez en la historia de la vela debe luchar para que el amor le conceda una segunda oportunidad. Esta obra se considera una de las velas mas oscuras de Jane Austen, sin duda la mas critica con la sociedad de la epoca. Obligada a conducirse prudentemente en su juventud, con la edad se volvia cada vez mas romantica: esa era la consecuencia logica de su iniciacion antinatural. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION First published in 1818, Persuasion was Jane Austen's last work. Its mellow character and autumnal tone have long made it a favorite with Austen readers. Set in Somersetshire and Bath, the vel revolves around the lives and love affair of Sir Walter Elliot, his daughters Elizabeth, Anne, and Mary, and various in-laws, friends, suitors, and other characters, In Anne Elliot, the author created perhaps her sweetest, most appealing heroine. At the center of the vel is Anne's thwarted romance with Captain Frederick Wentworth, a navy man Anne met and fell in love with when she was 19. At the time, Wentworth was deemed an unsuitable match and Anne was forced to break off the relationship. Eight years later, however, they meet again. By this time Captain Wentworth has made his fortune in the navy and is an attractive catch. However, Anne is w uncertain about his feelings for her. But after various twists and turns of fortune, the vel ends on a happy te. In Persuasion, as in such vels as Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, and Emma, Austen limned the plight of young women who could escape the constraints of family life only by marrying, and suggest the foolishness of women who believed they were free and t dependent on the financial and social resources of men. At the same time, Persuasion offers an ironic and subtle paean to the true love that enables one woman to rise above straitened ecomic circumstances and the stifling social conventions that restricted women to narrowly circumscribed lives in the common sitting room. Sure to appeal to admirers of Jane Austen, Persuasion will delight any reader with its finely drawn characters, gentle satire, and charming re-creation of the genteel world of the 19th-century English countryside.|
