8 November 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Friday, repeating until 22 November 2019
Tutor: Dr Danielle GroverGo to all Courses
Mansfield Park and Persuasion were two of Jane Austen”s later novels and music features heavily as a theme, plot device and means of characterisation. During this course we will discuss and explore how music shapes Jane Austen”s novels. Keen readers are welcome and this course assumes no former study of music or these novels. If you love reading Austen”s fiction and are now curious about how music relates to her novels, this is the course for you.
