Jane Austen enjoyed Music as well as writing. This course examines the role of music in ‘Pride and Prejudice’, ‘Sense and Sensibility’ and ‘Emma’, considering how Austen uses music to characterize her heroines and create plot diversions. Keen readers are welcome and this course assumes no former study of Music. If you love reading Austen’s fiction and are now curious about her musical side, this is the course for you.

The audience at wonderful Dillington House proved, once more, to be intelligent, informed and engaged with the subject. It is a delight to talk at a place where the thirst for culture and knowledge remains both broad and deep. Giles Tremlett (2013)
