This product provides a 15 minute illustrated talk on video dealing with the characters of Sir Walter Elliot and Elizabeth Elliot in 'Persuasion' by Jane Austen. The characters are linked to themes in the novel like vanity, snobbery and morality. Jane Austen's use of satire and comic characterization are also touched on. This resource should form a basis for a lively discussion about the nature of these two characters in the novel as well as the themes which they highlight.
