    Jane Austen’s last novel, “Persuasion,” tells the story of Anne Elliot and Frederick Wentworth. Seven years after Anne rejects the man she loves after a family friend persuades her that he isn’t a good enough match for her, Frederick Wentworth returns to England looking for a wife. Jane Austen completed the manuscript of “Persuasion” in the summer of 1816. It was not published until after her death. Jane Austen’s poems were mostly occasional, light comic verses written to celebrate events, like a marriage or the birth of a child, to entertain family and friends. This delightful selection, with an introduction by Alison Larkin, ranges from “This Little Bag,” which Austen wrote on a tiny piece of paper placed in the pocket of a tiny bag she gave to her niece on Christmas night 1792, to “When Winchester Races,” written in July 1817, just three days before her death.

She wrote moral stories and ballads on many topics and was one of the most successful writers, and perhaps the most influential Christian woman, of her day.

    Charlotte Smith was one of England’s first Romantic poets. Among other legacies, her Elegiac Sonnets, an instant success, helped revive the English sonnet, and her novels—of which she wrote ten—helped form genre conventions for the gothic novel. Popular and prolific in her lifetime, she faded into obscurity after her death; only in recent history has her unique talent and influence been widely celebrated once again. Collected here is a sample of Smith’s masterful poetry. Melancholic, infused with a reverence for the natural world, and critical of the period’s patriarchy, these are the words of a woman who William Wordsworth described as a poet “to whom English verse is under greater obligations than are likely to be either acknowledged or remembered.”

    The Poetry of Amy Lowell. Poetry is a fascinating use of language. With almost a million words at its command it is not surprising that the English language has produced some of the most beautiful, moving and descriptive verse through the centuries. In this volume we look at the works of the American poet Amy Lowell. She was born into the prominent Lowell family in Brookline Massachusetts in 1874. Although her brother was to become President of Harvard she never entered college, her family considering it not proper for a woman. However she loved books and was an avid reader and collector. A socialite, she traveled widely and first began to publish in 1910. Thought to be a lesbian, the erotic themes within several of her poems are a wonderful loving tribute and exploration of her relationships. She published other poets and was working on a biography of the poet John Keats which brought forth the wonderful line “The stigma of oddness is the price a myopic world always exacts of genius.”In becoming a major figure in the Imagist movement she clashed with Erza Pound frequently. In 1925 she died of a cerebral hemorrhage at the age of fifty-one. The following year, she won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for What’s O’Clock. This volume of her poems is read by Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe

    Some would argue that Jane Austen was England’s finest female author—and it would be hard to argue otherwise. The characters and sweep of the lives of the landed gentry and her grip on social commentary in Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, and Northanger Abbey are true testament to her greatness. But here we present another facet of her talent: her poetry. Often overlooked, her admittedly slim collection is nonetheless as charming as her more popular novels. This audiobook includes “Happy the Lab’rer,” “I’ve a Pain in My Head,” “Mock Panegyric on a Young Friend,” “My Dearest Frank, I Wish You Joy,” and others.
