EN 3520 - Jane Austen Study

An intensive study of selections from the body of Jane Austen’s work, the course is divided into three areas of interest. The primary focus begins on two representative novels, their place in Austen’s developing technique, and a review of the criticisms – both historical and present day – that influenced readers of the novels from the beginning until now. The middle section of the course centers on selected letters and excerpts from influential biographical works. The final highlight of the course is the viewing and reviewing of the recent revival of Austen’s work in the cinema and the critical response thereto.

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