0 Reviews
Due in part to the many film and video releases in the last decade of the twentieth century, there is a renewed interest in Jane Austen in high school and college classrooms. As an educational resource, Jane Austen in the Classroom helps teachers to guide readers who are being introduced to these novels - as well as readers who know and love Austen's works - through the process of «viewing the novel», reading Austen with an imaginative eye, and «reading the film», analyzing the adaptations as re-creations of Austen's cultural and fictional worlds. This book references the latest critical analyses of the novels and the videos. As a pedagogical tool, the text is a valuable resource for educators and students of the British novel and literature by women, offering innovative approaches to discussion, analysis, writing, and research.
