Oregon & SW Washington Region: CANCELED: Jane Austen and the Arts, Part 2 (Virtual)
This event has been canceled.
Marcia Hamley will give an overview of the book Jane Austen and the Arts: Elegance, Propriety, and Harmony (edited by Natasha Duquette and Elizabeth Lenckos). Reading the book is not necessary to attend.
Publisher's book description: "The essays collected in Jane Austen and the Arts: Elegance, Propriety, and Harmony examine Austen’s understanding of the arts, her aesthetic philosophy, and her role as artist. Together, they explore Austen’s connections with . . . writers engaged in debates on the sensuous experience and the intellectual judgment of art. The contributors look at Austen’s engagement with diverse art forms, such as painting, ballet, drama, poetry, and music. . . . As a result, a new and compelling image of Austen emerges, a 'portrait of a lady artist' confidently promoting a distinctly post-Enlightenment aesthetic system of her own."
