Dr. Jean Boreen, dean of SUU’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences, joins President Scott L Wyatt and Steve Meredith this week for the last book in the Summer Book Club: Pride and Prejudice. They discuss the bridge Pride and Prejudice has built between classic literature and young adult literature and outline some of Jane Austen’s background as a successful author in the 1800s.
. . . there were women during the timeframe that Austen compared herself to who were being published, and I think in that way, she was very competitive and wanted to make sure that what she was writing could be held up against anything that was being written by any of these other female authors, as well as most of the male authors . . .
