Lady Susan

Lady Susan by Jane Austen

Depicted through letters, Lady Susan tells the story of the titular character as she seeks husbands for herself and her daughter while maintaining a clandestine relationship with a married man. It is believed that Austen wrote Lady Susan in 1794, although it was not published until 1871, long after Austen’s death in 1817. Although written in Austen’s trademark style, Lady Susan is remarkable among Austen’s canon as Lady Susan pursues matches significantly younger than herself and for Austen’s mild treatment of Lady Susan’s adultery, which is more harshly punished in her other works, notably Mansfield Park.

Lady Susan has been adapted for the stage and re-imagined in text.
