VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT GUIDE

Well, Valentine’s Day is upon us once again, so we have put together a little guide to some of themes essential Valentine’s themed books from the Folio Society collection.


Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice

By Jane Austen

Introduced by Sebastian Faulks

Illustrated by Anna and Elena Balbusso

Both a sparkling comedy of manners and gripping romance, Pride and Prejudice remains one of the best-loved books in the world.

‘I had not known you a month before I felt that you were the last man in the world whom I could ever be prevailed on to marry.’

One of the world’s favourite books, Pride and Prejudice has long been regarded as a classic romance. In Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, Jane Austen created the greatest pair of sparring lovers since Shakespeare’s Beatrice and Benedick. This sparkling comedy of manners features an inimitable cast of characters including the obsequious Mr Collins, the autocratic Lady Catherine de Bourgh, and Mrs Bennet, the most embarrassing mother in literature.

Jane Eyre

By Charlotte Brontë

Introduced by Emma Donoghue

Illustrated by Santiago Caruso

Illustrated by Santiago Caruso, our edition of Charlotte Brontë’s beloved novel celebrates its gothic undercurrents.

Orphaned Jane emerges from a cold, hostile upbringing at Lowood Institution to take her place as governess at Thornfield, home of Mr Rochester. With her petulant but loving charge, Adele, and the housekeeper Mrs Fairfax as her sole company, Rochester remains a distant, mysterious and yet imposing presence. As time goes by, however, Jane’s life at Thornfield becomes increasingly unsettled, and strange and ever more frightening occurrences lead her towards a shocking revelation.

Emma

By Jane Austen

Introduced by Fay Weldon

Illustrated by Sam Wolfe Connelly

Published in series with Pride and Prejudice, this sparkling edition is introduced by Fay Weldon.

‘I am going to take a heroine whom nobody but myself will much like,’ wrote Jane Austen when beginning Emma in January 1814. In this she was proved wrong. Pride and Prejudice may be her most famous novel, Persuasion her most deeply affecting, but for many, Emma is Austen’s best novel; the most perfectly balanced between comedy and insight, sparkle and depth. Witty, headstrong Emma Woodhouse, more interested in making matches for others than falling in love herself, is a wholly delightful heroine. The secondary characters – the impressionable Harriet, egotistical Mr Elton and Emma’s gentle, hypochondriac father – are just as unforgettable.
