Pride and Prejudice
Pride and Prejudice and Shmoop.
Sharpen those claws, Shmoopers, because it's about to get catty in here. Jane Austen may have a reputation for writing about demure ladies in fancy dresses sitting around and talking about getting married, but Pride and Prejudice is more than that.
This course includes activities, readings, and projects designed to help you
- describe and analyze Austen's writing style. (Common Core, anyone?)
- understand the history of the English novel and Jane Austen's place in it.
- explore the social and historical realities of early 19th-century life.
- think about how STEM perspectives might apply to literary analysis. (Hello, interdisciplinarity!)
