The Other Manipulative Women in Jane Austen's “Lady Susan”
The Art of The Novella Series Too short to be a novel, too long to be a short story, the novella is generally unrecognized by academics and publishers. In the Art Of The Novella series, Melville House celebrates this renegade art form and its practitioners with titles that are, in many instances, presented in book form for the first time.
What these singular, distinctive titles celebrate is book-ness. Paperback —. Add to Cart.

Inspired by Your Browsing History. I like this novel because it has elements of later novels — Lady Susan is very like the witty coquettish Mary Crawford in Mansfield Park.
Frederica is much like Fanny Price, the heroine of Mansfield Park, who loves Edmund but is not aware of her love for him and only loves him as a brother although he is her cousin. She also has the same shy personality but is slightly older and more sensible and she would never run away.
I also like the other qualities of narrative technique that she uses as it is written in letters and the use of different narrative voices was very new at the time. However the story is not very well developed as Jane Austen was said to be learning to write at the time and was only She wrote Pride and Pride as Prejudice a year later.
The characters like Frederica, for example, are not well developed and I would have liked to see more letters from her as there is only one.
Also the ending was a bit rushed and not well concluded. Overall however I would give it 3. However it is a bit too short and a slightly rushed.
