£240 Sold out

I first read Jane Eyre as a teenager and was immediately captivated by the rebellious spirit of Jane’s voice and her journey from downtrodden outsider to mistress of all she surveys. Jane got to have it all. Or did she? In this course you will have the opportunity to see the novel as both a liberated portrait of female desire and as a darker engagement with issues of sex, power and race. In the final two weeks of the course we will turn…

In Mrs Dalloway and To the Lighthouse, Virginia Woolf’s experiments with narrative technique and multiple perspectives take the novel into uncharted waters, exploring individual consciousness, interweaving lives and unspoken memories and desires in ways that are at once challengingly innovative and refreshingly direct.

This course runs over 5 weeks and…

Mansfield Park is Austen’s least-loved novel but it happens to be one of my favourites. Of all her novels, it is the one written on the widest canvas and the only one to be named after a house (Northanger Abbey was given its name posthumously by Austen’s brother – she in fact called it, Susan).
