From Pemberley Park to the VG3-classroom. The leading men of Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion: Created, Adapted and Analysed
AuthorLambela, Tine Pedersen
This thesis will focus upon some of Jane Austen’s significant authorial qualities: her ability to create believable and timeless characters and her ironical discourse. Austen’s use of the romantic novel as a medium to criticize her contemporary society will also be addressed. The thesis will discuss how Austen may be taught to students at VG3-level in the Upper Secondary School by using novel, film and characterization. The thesis consists of a discussion of a literary analysis of the main male characters in Pride and Prejudice (1813) and Persuasion (1817), which will function as a basis from where it will examine how the novels and recent mainstream film adaptations may be used to teach Austen. The use of the different mediums novel and film in the classroom will be explored and exemplified by two pedagogical teaching plans.
