'Persuasion' by Jane Austen - Prudence versus Romance
Product Description
This product consists of a 12 minute illustrated talk on video on the theme of 'prudence versus romance' in 'Persuasion' by Jane Austen. Anne Elliot's dilemma is unfolded as it crosses over with other themes in the novel like virtue, faith and good sense. Insights into Jane Austen's authorial voice are also presented. The video should form a useful starting point for a debate about whether Anne was right in her decision to turn down Wentworth's initial offer of marriage.
