About this course:
Now that we all have a great deal of free time, , let’s read those books we’ve heard about but never had a chance to read. In this course, we read well-known British authors Jane Austen, Anne Brontë, and George Eliot, and American author Edith Wharton. These four women provide insights into society, the lives of women, and social mores of their day. The novels are Pride and Prejudice (1813) and Emma (1815) by Jane Austen, Agnes Grey (1847) by Anne Brontë, Silas Marner (1861) by George Eliot, and House of Mirth (1905) by Edith Wharton. All books are from the Barnes and Noble Classics series, except Silas Marner, which is a Penguin Classics. Please note that class meets every other week.
