ENGL 254 - Jane Austen: The Works and the Phenomenon


FDR: HL
Credits: 4
Prerequisite: Completion of FW requirement. A study of Jane Austen’s writing as well as her popularity. We study four major novels (Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, and Persuasion), read scholarship on the history of “Janeites” (a name variously claimed by and applied with opprobrium to her devotees), and receive lessons on aspects of culture (such as English Country Dancing) frequently cited in Austen’s works. Students contribute to a reading blog, work in a group to produce a project about contemporary Austen fans, and write a longer analytical essay. Braunschneider.
