Sorry, this course is full.
Austen’s novel, Persuasion, is usually described as autumnal because Jane Austen wrote it late in her short life. There’s also the melancholy of regret and the familiar wish for a do-over, a longing for a second chance. With no expectation, Anne Elliot wishes for one, despite her feckless family and misguided mentor. In addition to Austen’s clever plot are the pleasures of her lively wit and elegant prose. We’ll discuss the book in class, read scenes aloud and watch clips from the two most recent films made of the book. There is a new version filming now.
