ENG-3930 One Writer's Vision: Jane Austen

One Writer's Vision: Jane Austen is an upper-level course that focuses on three novels by Jane Austen and the ways in which she expressed her concerns and preoccupations with the changes that occurred in her time. These changes included: the status of women; the interconnection between marriage, money, and love; and the relationship between social status and wealth. Students will have an opportunity to extend critical and analytical abilities by assessing those issues and their influence on Austen's central characters in each of her three novels.

Advisory: Students should please consider carefully whether they want to register for ENG-3930: One Writer's Vision: Jane Austen, which is a 3-credit course, or ENG-2980: Jane Austen: Pride and Prejudice, which is a 1-credit course that requires students to read only one of the three novels required in the former. It is not possible to earn credit for both of these courses, either by registering simultaneously or by registering for one and then for the other at a future date. This is an upper-level literature course. Students should be familiar with the vocabulary and conventions of literary analysis as well as the correct use of Modern Language Association (MLA) style documentation. Before enrolling in an upper-level literature course, students are strongly encouraged to complete English Composition II and one or more introductory literature courses and/or have equivalent knowledge.
