10/3 Notes 16:07 What would Jane Austen have to say to Twilight ? She would go against the engaging qualities and dislikes the fake aspects of it Fantasy vs. Reality Would not like Bella Swan, not an Austen heroine because she’s quite dumb, no qualities that make you want to be her What kind of reader has Austen created in Catherine? And in the book’s reader? Austen created an avid reader in Catherine who is able to get lost in the novel or story she is reading. She looks at life as if it is one of her novels and is eager to find the gothic aspect in the world around her. Austen wants the book’s reader to have an analytical quality to them What is Matthew Arnold’s argument in the essay? What is his reading of the Romantic poets? Work should be criticized for what it is, and get rid of the extraneous stuff Criticism should be disinterestedness (get rid of other qualities) Not caught up in other politics or social events, see the work as it is Criticism should be “The best that is known and thought in the world” ***WILL BE ON THE FINAL Timeline 1807: Abolition of slavery in Britain 1830 1832: First Reform Bill (extended the voting rights to 1 in 6 men in Britain) 1833: Abolition of slavery in all British colonies 1837: Victoria Ascends Throne
