The Complete Poems of James Austen. Jane Austen's eldest brother.
Ed., Intro and Notes by David Selwyn. Jane's eldest sibling James [1765-1819] was a prolific poet, yet none of his verse was published in his lifetime; except for excerpts in letters, most are in print here for the first time. Includes 42 pages of explanatory notes. Despite Jane's troubles with James's second wife Mary, James's interests certainly influenced Jane's work as a novelist. JAS: 2003. 191 pages. Paperbound.
