Austen In Boston: A Jane Austen Book Club added an event.
18 hrs ·
Austen explores Emma’s mind using the free indirect discourse developed in Mansfield Park, presenting Emma’s brain as mobile, telepathic, and quick. Emma’s mind sometimes registers uneasy awareness of alternatives to her chosen behavior. Although the narrator knows Emma’s mind, Emma must experience shocks
to her consciousness to know it herself.
Local member Stephanie Diehl, a student at Bridgewater State, will present her winning essay on Education in Emma from the 2016 JASNA AGM.
The meeting fee is $5 for members, $10 for non-members.
Non-members may attend up to five meetings before joining JASNA.
Wheelock’s Boston Campus is easily accessible.
By subway, take the “D” line to Fenway or Longwood and walk to Riverway.

‘I am now alone in the library, Mistress of all I survey’
Jane Austen, letter from Godmersham Park, 1813
It’s #NationalLibrariesWeek , and a good time for us to remind our friends and supporters that Chawton House Library provides a home to the Knight Family Collection. Many of these books were originally from the library at Godmersham Park, Kent, home of Jane Austen’s brother, Edward. The library was broken up in the early 20th century, but an important core of the collection still remains.
A research group of scholars and bibliophiles has formed ‘The Godmersham Lost Sheep Society’ (GLOSS), searching for all books that were originally in the library, recording them, and returning them to us at Chawton House Library where possible.
