Love and Freindship the misspelling is one of many in the story is clearly a parody of romantic novels Austen read as a child.
This tale, in epistolary form , is one of Jane Austen's Juvenilia. Love and Freindship which is usually cited in Jane Austen's original spelling is an exuberant parody of the cult of sensibility , which she later criticized in a more serious way in her novel Sense and Sensibility. For the main characters in Love and Freindship , including the narrator Laura , violent and overt emotion substitutes for morality and common sense. Characters who have this " sensibility " fall into each other's arms weeping the first time they ever meet, and on suffering any misfortune are too preoccupied with indulging their emotions to take any effective action. They use their fine feelings as the excuse for any misdeeds, and despise characters without such feelings.

Begun when she was just eleven years old, Love and Friendship is one of Jane Austen's stories that very few readers may have encountered before. Austen experts feel that this story was written, like many others, only for the pleasure of her family and friends. It is scribbled across three notebooks, in childish handwriting, and the complete work is thought to have been written over a period of six or seven years. It is dedicated to one of her cousins, whom she was very close to, Eliza de Feuillide. Eliza herself was an extremely colorful figure and is thought to have been the illegitimate daughter of the first Governor General of India, Warren Hastings. She was also a witness to the French Revolution where her husband, the self styled Comte de Feuillide was guillotined.
