Jane Austens Georgian Miscellany

Georgian Miscellany Part 2 explores the realities of the Georgians’ daily lives through a fascinating glimpse into their families and houses, their sports and pastimes, their education and professions. What they wore, the food on their tables and the art displayed on their walls were all indicators of manners and taste, as were the kind of friendships they enjoyed. Drawing on Jane Austen’s novels and letters together with contemporary comments, this four night course will reveal the links that connect the Georgian age so closely to our own.
