Jane Austen

Find out why we read and re-read Jane Austen's writing 200 years after its publication.

Jane Austen's fiction is still in print 200 years after its publication, and still appears at the top of polls to find the most popular novel in English. This course considers why that is, and what makes the novels so much more satisfactory than the adaptations. We shall look at Austen's techniques of narration and characterisation, and place them in their historical and literary contexts.
