Persuasion is the last novel that Jane Austen completed. Anne Elliot is 28, in the autumn of her courtship years. She’s not as persuadable as she was when she was 19 and refused a suitor. Will she have a second chance? And will she use it or squander it? We’ll discuss Austen’s wit and style as well as characters and themes. We’ll also watch clips from various film adaptations and see whether they got it right or not.
