|My students listening to one of their mates' lessons|
1. My Students give their lessons: Persuasion by Jane Austen, 2. Pride and Prejudice Part I 3. Pride and Prejudice Part II 4. Born to Be a Heroine: Watching Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey )
We discussed several issues like marriage, propriety and decorum, money and power, education of men and women in the Regency but we also learnt something about irony and characterization in fiction.

The difference was stated by the novelist E. M. Forster (I love all his novels!) in his work Aspects of the Novel (1927)
