[ARCHIVED] Jane Austen and Her Women


Jane Austen and Her Women
A Historical Portrayal by Leslie Goddard
Sunday, October 26 @ 2:00 p.m.
Bensenville Public Library

Jane Austen has time-travelled to today and agreed to answer the most common question about her life: what did she really think about marriage? While speaking, she refers back to the women in her novels, bringing them to life in monologues from her books as they discuss romance, choice of a spouse and the position of women. Beginning and ending with Elizabeth Bennet, this program introduces eight Austen characters – including Emma Woodhouse, Anne Elliott, Marianne Dashwood, and others – using Austen’s own dry, humorous and sarcastic words. No previous knowledge of Austen required.
