    ever have thought well of me again Frank Churchill in Emma by Jane Austen 2 How does Courtney Jane use Jane Austen s novels as a means of making sense of her world Have you ever turned to your favorite books or films for inner strength guidance or comfort Oh it is only a novel replies the young lady while she lays down her book with affected indifference or momentary shame It is in short only some work in which the greatest powers of the mind are displayed in which the most thorough knowledge of human nature the happiest delineation of its varieties the liveliest effusions of wit and humour are conveyed to the world in the best chosen language Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen 3 How do you interpret the ending of the book Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery I quit such odious subjects as soon as I can impatient to restore everybody not greatly in fault themselves to tolerable comfort and to have done with all the rest Mansfield Park by Jane Austen 4 Aside from the societal restrictions on a woman s mobility career choices and living arrangements that Courtney Jane faced in 1813 have parental peer and personal attitudes toward unmarried women fundamentally changed since Jane Austen s day Ah Jane I take your place now and you must go lower because I am a married woman Lydia Bennet in Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen 5 One of the ways in which Courtney Jane defines herself is by what she reads To what extent do we define ourselves by what we read To what extent do we form our opinions of others based on what they read The person be it gentleman or lady who has not pleasure in a good novel

    s dating rules and rituals there is not one in a hundred of either sex who is not taken in when they marry Look where I will I see that it is so and I feel that it must be so when I consider that it is of all transactions the one in which people expect most from others and are least honest themselves Mary Crawford in Mansfield Park by Jane Austen 3 In the book Jane reads the novels of Jane Austen for comfort and guidance as she attempts to navigate the confusing modern world Have you ever turned to Jane Austen for comfort and guidance Are there other authors that serve that purpose for you How have their works been helpful to you Oh I am delighted with the book I should like to spend my whole life in reading it Catherine Morland in Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen 4 On two occasions Jane consults a mysterious lady in Deepa s club Who do you think this lady is and where does she come from Have you ever had an extraordinary encounter with someone that you could not explain in rational terms This was strange indeed But strange things may be generally accounted for if their cause be fairly searched out Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen 5 What do you think the lady in Deepa s club meant by It is my belief that each of us makes his own fortune and as a matter of fact tells it as well Did Jane make her own fortune and tell it as well a sanguine temper though for ever expecting more good than occurs does not always pay for its hopes by any proportionate depression It soon flies over the present failure and begins to hope again Emma 6 At one point in the story the lady reminds Jane of the above line from Pride and Prejudice in trying to show Jane that she is being unfairly judgmental of Courtney s choices with respect to the men in her life She adds Even if a man who looks like a thief is indeed a thief that is not the whole story Only by stepping into his shoes can you begin to comprehend what made him a thief and what else he is besides a thief for we are not only just one thing we are many You of all people should know that Do you agree or disagree It is particularly incumbent on those who never change their opinion to be secure of judging properly at first Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen 7 Another thing the lady said to Jane was also in response to Jane s bewilderment at the sexual mores of the twenty first century The only difference between today s world and your world is that people have more choices now than they did then Do you agree or disagree Without thinking highly either of men or of matrimony marriage had always
