Jane Austen's Lesser Half: Lesser Known Works
Of Jane Austen’s six novels, three have received much less attention and acclaim. We will begin with Northanger Abbey
, her earliest completed effort and wittiest book. Then we will follow with Mansfield Park
, often called her most substantial novel, and the centerpiece of our discussion. We will end with Persuasion
, Austen’s most radical story. Film versions of each novel will also accompany our talks.
Professor Ehrstine’s seminars have been very popular and highly regarded. Texts, as well as films to aid in the study, will be available at the Library. Seating is limited, so sign-up early to reserve your seat.
