We will read three of Jane Austen's novels very slowly to learn why they are among the world's most enduringly popular and the most technically innovative. The novels are Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, and Emma. For additional insights, we will turn to recent film adaptations of all three. I hope to teach students who not only love to read but also feel curiosity about why they love to read. The students should want to learn more about the aspects of writing that attract them to certain authors and kinds of narratives.
