ENG3142 Jane Austen Through Fiction and Film
Credit Points: 15

This unit examines the novels by Jane Austen as well as their translation into film. It considers Austen and her fiction in their cultural and historical contexts and compares them with various film adaptations. Students learn a range of critical and theoretical approaches in their investigation of Jane Austen’s world view and the ‘magic’ timelessness of her writing and characters that inspire film-makers to re-invent her world and many an actor to ‘become’ one of her characters.
