Course Description:

Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is the beloved tale of romance between the smart and opinionated Elizabeth Bennet and the arrogant and misunderstood Mr. Darcy. It’s full of meddling relatives, wicked rogues, conniving adversaries—and loyal sisters who have the good fortune of meeting very rich suitors.

It’s also a tricky book to read, with its sophisticated prose and historical conventions, and it’s often required reading at Bay Area high schools and many universities. This class will help you understand the historical background of the novel so that you can learn to annotate, analyze, and enjoy a work that will likely come up again in your education.

We’ll identify literary techniques and study themes so that you can be ready to discuss this novel—and other novels of British literature—next time you’re assigned this or a similar text in school. We’ll also write 2-3 essays over the course of the summer that will help you prepare for the type of writing assignments you can expect from your next English teacher.
