From the Publisher: Samuel Richardson's massive seven volume history appeared in 1754, and even Jane Austen could not resist the charms of Sir Charles Grandison. Jane Austen historians are well familiar with her fascination of Sir Charles Grandison. She wrote dramatic versions for her family and friends, while having her book characters mock Richardson's work.
Now, in the 21st century, The History of Charles Grandison has once again been edited, revised, and modernized, and perhaps most importantly, condensed.
This edition, based on research into Richardson's intention, is highly readable and preserves the original language, and captures Richardson's playful power.
