Product Description
This product consists of a 22 minute illustrated talk on video covering various aspects of Jane Austen's writing style and comic technique.

These aspects are addressed with examples from 'Persuasion', her other novels and various other illustrations:

* Her use of language.
* Irony, parody, caricature, and burlesque.
* Her employment of free indirect speech.
* The use of humorous characterization.

A full transcript is included together with the illustrations used.

This resource should be very helpful as an aid to understanding the technical aspects of Jane Austen's writing and could be used in the teaching of any of her novels.

An animated and engaging talk very carefully researched. I hope that it will inspire a real admiration for the writing craft of this wonderful author. Perhaps it will even help students tackle analysis of other great writers of comedy and satire.
