For those 55 and up.

From the devoted admiration of King George IV to modern parodies like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the works of Jane Austen have never lost their popularity. Austen may have dismissed herself as “the most unlearned and ill-informed female ever to have been an authoress,” but she is widely regarded as one of England’s greatest novelists. Professor Cynthia Caywood will discuss Austen’s literary reputation and her influence on both high and popular culture during the two hundred years since she first published in 1811.
