Description

Introduction and Notes by Elaine Jordan, Reader in Literature, University of Essex.

What does persuasion mean - a firm belief, or the action of persuading someone to think something else? Anne Elliot is one of Austen's quietest heroines, but also one of the strongest and the most open to change. She lives at the time of the Napoleonic wars, a time of accident, adventure, the making of new fortunes and alliances.

A woman of no importance, she manoeuvres in her restricted circumstances as her long-time love Captain Wentworth did in the wars. Even though she is nearly thirty, well past the sell-by bloom of youth, Austen makes her win out for herself and for others like herself, in a regenerated society.

Best love letter of all time
By: Stephanie Buntoro

The highlight of this book for me is the love letter towards the end and if it's only based on that, I probably would have given a 5-star. I utterly adore Captain Wentworth but Anne as a heroine falls a bit short for me, and their interactions throughout the book leave me wanting for more. Most side characters are unpleasant and sometimes downright horrible. Worth reading only if you're a fan of famous classic romances in general or Jane Austen in particular.
