My argument contrasts to those below insofar as I see a closer link between the published and the unpublished writings than most critics and I interpret them as more politically charged—indeed, as significantly so—than most other readers. The Juvenilia Press focuses on the "concept of 'play,'" which "allows one both to avoid the implied teleology of apprenticeship and to approach juvenilia on their own terms" (Robertson 293). Johnson does not discuss the role of crime in the Juvenilia in the same detail as I do. Doody has written persuasively on the importance of the Juvenilia as texts in themselves and not as the works of an apprentice: "Jane Austen was not a child as a writer when she wrote these early pieces. Margaret Drabble finds in them "another Jane Austen, a fiercer, wilder, more outspoken, more ruthless writer, with a dark vision of human motivation [. The long tendency of sentimental fiction to etherealize the heroine can hardly survive against this gust of earthy comedy" ("Energy"178).
Approaches to the literary significance of the Juvenilia and of the relationship between Austen's Juvenilia and her later works vary. Austen's first struggles to find a literary voice of her own" (Halperin 30). Juliet Mc Master explores how in juvenilia in general the presence of "sexual knowingness in a child, especially a girl" is usually met with "resistance": "[w]riting and doing it are seen as perilously close, although the same assumption would not apply in the case of subjects less loaded" ("Virginal Representations" 304-5, 302). Juliet Mc Master sums it up: "[t]hese females are frankly in pursuit of good male bodies and, by implication, good sex.

For illegal marriages, see "Henry and Eliza," "Love and Friendship," "Sir William Mountague," and "Letter the second From a Young lady crossed in Love to her friend" from "A Collection of Letters." For "natural" children, see "Love and Friendship" as well as the children conceived by characters in "Henry and Eliza," and "Letter the second From a Young lady crossed in Love to her friend."In Wit and Mirth, at least sixteen songs alone have either Chloe or Strephon in their title, and these songs are, on the whole, erotic in nature. .]'Till furious Love sallying, / At last he fell dallying, / And down, down he got him, But oh!
For example, Lord David Cecil called them "squibs and skits of the light literature of the day" (qtd. My own point of view is closest to that of Claudia Johnson's, especially insofar as she argues that "Austen treats conventions not as sterile devices, but as structures of human possibilities which evolve from specific social and political situations [. She possessed a sophistication rarely matched in viewing and using her own medium [. As Doody and Douglas Murray point out in their edition of the Juvenilia, the Prince Regent's affairs were well known, including his liaison with Mary Robinson and, in 1785, his well-known, though invalidated marriage to Maria Fitzherbert (295-6).
Lewis and Quick were noted actors: William Thomas Lewis—who was in such plays as Inchbald's Everyone Has His Fault and Cowley's Bold Stroke for a Husband—was at Covent Garden for 35 seasons and was the acting manager of Covent Garden between 1782-1893.
He was known for parts in comedy of manners and farce. Roy Porter goes on to state that the Romantics rejected "Enlightenment sensuality as gross and materialistic" for the "idealization of love, and particularly of woman" (Facts of Life 32).
