I am happy to announce that I will be working on a Jane Austen Panel Episode over the next couple of weeks. The episode will feature six readers, each championing a particular novel from Austen’s body of work. I’m sure that we will end up mooning over her wit, discussing her deft social criticism, placing her novels in a broader cultural narrative, vouching for favourite heroines/heroes, and (most likely) proving the power of a well-written letter of apology.
Sense and Sensibility (1811)
Pride and Prejudice (1813)
Mansfield Park (1814)
Northanger Abbey (1818, posthumous)
Persuasion (1818, posthumous)
So please stay tuned! I’m really looking forward to producing and releasing this episode.
