Publication of Approaches to Teaching Austen’s “Persuasion”

We’re delighted to announce the publication of Approaches to Teaching Austen’s “Persuasion” in the MLA’s Approaches to Teaching World Literature Series.

Part 1, “Materials,” suggests editions for classroom use, criticism, and multimedia resources. Part 2, “Approaches,” presents strategies for teaching the literary, contextual, and philosophical dimensions of the novel. Essays address topics such as free indirect discourse and other narrative techniques; social class in Austen’s England; the role of the navy during war and peacetime; key locations in the novel, including Lyme Regis and Bath; and health, illness, and the ethics of care.
