Celebrating the bicentenary of one of the most loved English novels, this course looks at what makes Jane Austen, and Pride and Prejudice in particular, so brilliant. Austen herself famously thought Pride and Prejudice ‘rather too light and bright and sparkling’ when her family began reading aloud her first printed copy. We explore, through lectures, video, discussion, Austen’s other writing, and a comparison with Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, what makes the book so sparkling, and how it is more than just an entertainment.

This course is for readers of Jane Austen or those who want to understand why Jane Austen is so well-loved.

By the end of this course, students will have enhanced their enjoyment and gained an understanding of Jane Austen.

Early bird discount available until 2 weeks prior to the course start date.
