Course Description

Why do critics consider her novels classics, and do those works really stand the test of time? Her wit and humor certainly do. In this overview of Austen’s life
and work, no readings are required; however, if you choose, you can read a particular work, or sample a variety of her writing.


Presented by Elizabeth Steele, a member of the Jane Austen society of North America for over twenty years.
