Product description


"... this masterful edition of The Loiterer is necessary reading for everyone who aspires to understand the writerly world in which the young Jane Austen took root, for in this periodical, largely written and edited by her brothers James and Henry, the literary cultures of family, university and nation come together..." - Professor Claudia L. Johnson, Princeton University"


The Oxford-based weekly periodical, "The Loiterer", which appeared from January 31, 1789 to March 20, 1790, was the creation of both James Austen and his younger brother, Henry. Although the work of both men would be obscured by the achievements of their sister, Jane, their own writing deserves attention. "The Loiterer" represents an important stage in the history and development of the periodical essay as an English literary mode.
