What is Penguin Classics in Schools?

Jane Austen died 200 years ago, on 18 July 1817. To celebrate her memory, we’ve put together 50 classic books that capture the spirit of her literary world and the brilliant humour of her writing. As well as her six novels and two collections of her shorter works, here are great books that inspired Austen; were influenced by her; or can even be read as creative reactions against her, like Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre.

This offer is open to Secondary Schools and Libraries in the UK to purchase these titles from our Penguin Black Classics series at the discounted price of £1 per book for a limited time.

How long will the offer run for?

The Penguin Classics in Schools offer will run from 4th September through to and including 25th December 2017.
