from the six main novels, Jane Austen wrote a number of other shorter
pieces. Most of them date from her youth and are grouped together as
her 'juvenilia' - i.e. stuff she wrote when very young. There are also
a couple of unfinished fragments that she wrote before her death but
was never able to complete.
I've gathered together what I can find - click on the links below to get to the text. These are in (more or less) chronological order, with the juvenilia first. Bear in mind that not only was Jane Austen very young when she wrote some of these pieces, but her spelling and grammar were not the greatest in the world even when she was an adult, so the 'errors' are hers, not mine!
The juvenilia was collected by Jane Austen herself into three notebooks: Volume 1 (1787-1790), Volume 2 (1790-1792) and Volume 3 (1792-1793).
