Jane Austen’s Unfinished Novels: Jane Austen, A to Z:

Advertisements

Jane Austen had two unfinished novels: Sandition and The Watsons. She passed away in 1817 before she could finish the novels. Two of her other novels, Persuasion and Northanger Abbey, were published posthumously.

Sandition should be available to watch on Masterpiece this year. The Watsons was adapted for the theater. I haven’t heard too much about it.

Both novels were finished by other authors. I’m not sure how successful their endeavor was. It must be daunting to finish another authors work, especially a relatively popular and successful author with a large fan base.

Has anyone read Jane Austen’s unfinished novels, Sandition or The Watsons?

  1. alessandria today – Ex Dirigente, consulente e ora blogger Background, di Pier Carlo Lava Le mie esperienze lavorative nel settore Commerciale & marketing, un mondo che affascina, motiva e stimola, che ha contribuito a farmi crescere sotto il profilo professionale e umano. Un mondo dove non esiste la routine in quanto si rinnova ogni giorno, quasi ogni momento, un mondo in cui organizzazione, metodo, psicologia, dialettica, ma anche creatività e improvvisazione, sono gli elementi essenziali che contraddistinguono gli abili commerciali così come i valenti creativi nel Marketing. Molti di noi potendo ricominciare da capo intraprenderebbero altre attività, altri percorsi, personalmente invece non cambierei quasi nulla farei la stessa scelta, ben sapendo che per motivazioni intrinseche non sarebbe mai uguale, forse l’unica cosa che cambierei sarebbe quella di dare maggiore spazio alla famiglia, perchè confesso di averla un po trascurata.

      Thank you!

  2. I’m in the middle of plotting out book III of my series and it went through my mind, “This is taking so long,
    I’m going to die before I finish this.”

    In my case, of course, nobody will care.

    I’ve never heard of those two books. Thanks for the heads up!
