about this item

“Wisdom is better than wit,” said Jane Austen in a letter to Fanny Knight, “and in the long run will certainly have the laugh on her side.”
Have you ever wanted to contribute to a discussion with an astute observation on unrequited love? Give advice to a peer on how to dress for a night out? Or end an argument with a biting quip on feminist politics? The Smart Words and Wicked Wit of Jane Austen is the perfect pocket book to carry around in your bag as you meditate on Austen’s surprisingly modern and perceptive life philosophies set against the backdrop of eighteenth century mores. Discover what she had to say about style and dress, men and women, love and heartbreak, keeping up with appearances, arts and graces, health and happiness, and more, and stock up your arsenal of wicked and practical wisdoms as you navigate life.

Beautifully designed and curated, this entertaining collection compiles the wisest and wittiest Austen quotations that speak of the novelist’s enduring legacy in contemporary pop culture. Full of sense and sensibility, The Smart Words and Wicked Wit of Jane Austen is sure to delight devoted fans and casual readers alike.
