Romantic chic lit or radical writer? Will the real Jane Austen please stand up! - walking tour

10:00 (duration 2 hours)

Meet: outside the main door of Bath Abbey, BA1 1LT

We all know what Jane Austen wrote about don’t we? There are 6 novels which are essentially variations of the same plot; where following twists and turns, a few misunderstandings, all comes good in the end and our heroine gets her man. Add some poking fun at society of the day, and essentially, we have a nice bit of romantic comedy. Yet have we misread the books? What if there are far deeper themes highlighting society’s ills and failings.
 Come along with Bath Parade Guides to find out about hidden references to slavery, women’s rights, evolution, and other pressing matters of the day.
