EN 3520 - Jane Austen

For more than 200 years, the novels of Jane Austen have captivated readers and critics with their deft renderings of character and their precise manipulation of prose. In this course, we will explore the layers of Austen’s appeal. Drawing on theoretical and historical perspectives, we will examine Austen not just as a writer of romantic novels, but also as an Enlightenment thinker, an astute social critic, a broadly compassionate humanist and a masterful literary craftsperson. Finally, we will look forward - exploring the Austen’s legacy in the present day.

Prerequisite: EN 1110 /EN 1120 , or EN 1140 , or EN 1150 .
