Vermont Region: Birthday Tea
Celebrating the Bicentenary of Persuasion
You are cordially invited to join us for our annual Jane Austen Birthday Tea as we celebrate the bicentenary of Persuasion with a talk by Anna Battigelli, “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. Anna Battigelli is a Professor of English at SUNY Plattsburgh.
