Pride and Prejudice Character and Conflict – Virtual


Course Code: HPAP-su24 Categories: , , Tags: , ,


Did you know that Pride and Prejudice is regarded as one of the top ten greatest books of all time? Not only a comedy and romance, Jane Austen’s most famous novel is a multi-layered character study, revealing how her hero and heroine struggle and overcome their inner obstacles to love. This course will begin with an introduction to the English Regency period. Our focus, however, will be reading and discussing Pride and Prejudice, as well as viewing brief clips from several film adaptations. We will pay special attention to character development, especially how the main characters gain self-awareness as a result of conflict. Please read the first 15 (short!) chapters before the first class. Recommended: The Annotated Pride and Prejudice by Austen and Shapard.
