Timeless Jane Austen

Instructor: Dr. Carolyn Brown
Grade Levels: 12th
Tuition: $475
Jane Austen, who died 204 years ago this July, remains one of the most popular authors in the world. She only wrote six complete novels, but all continue to be read  and studied widely. In this class we will begin with a biography of Austen in order to examine her life and career, and then read two of her novels: Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion. In addition, students also will read an “Austen-inspired” work, literary criticism, and view clips from modern film adaptations of the two novels in order to attempt to understand her enduring popularity.
