Exhibition in Oxford: Which Jane Austen?
If you live in Britain, or plan to visit here next summer/autumn, you might be interested in this forthcoming exhibition:
22 June – 29 October 2017
Weston Library, Oxford
To mark 200 years since the death of Jane Austen, a major new exhibition at Oxford University’s Bodleian Libraries will challenge the current public perception of one of England’s greatest literary heroes.
Which Jane Austen? presents Austen as an ambitious and risk-taking businesswoman and a wartime writer who was informed and inspired by the surprising international adventures of her family and relations. Through a spectacular selection of Austen materials displayed together for the first time, the Bodleian Libraries delve into the myriad influences on this great writer’s work.
