This course will look at all six of Austen’s novels in order to analyze Austen’s innovations in the writing of a realist novel; we will examine her language, style and structure, her use of pastiche and parody, irony. We will examine her literary influences, the Gothic novel, Romanticism, and we will look at her biography and the historical context of her works, particularly the French Revolution. We will try to answer the questions, why are her works alive and well, frequently filmed, frequently updated?
