“Landscapes and Soundscapes in Jane Austen’s Narratives”
How does Jane Austen convince us that we are sharing the experience of an individual immersed in society? In part, she does so by showing us what that individual overhears and sees. This talk examines Austen’s narrative technique for its construction of rich and compelling representations of inner life through soundscapes and landscapes.

Please join us for an Afternoon of Tea and Jane Austen!
Hi Deb. I have got some very nice Darjeeling and Assam teas from India you could make a brew with to pour into those cups. The theme of this talk reminds me of reading Virginia Woolf. Hope you and Starr are well? Tony
