Event Details

‘I hope I never ridicule what is wise or good. Follies and nonsense, whims and inconsistencies do divert me, I own, and I laugh at them whenever I can.’
Pride and Prejudice

One evening in September, we welcomed the brilliant Austen scholar Professor John Mullan to Jane Austen’s House to deliver our annual lecture. A small audience joined him in the Drawing Room for a fascinating discussion of the contradictions displayed by some characters in Pride and Prejudice (and a few other novels) and what this tells us about them, delivered with all John’s trademark wit, humour and enthusiasm. He gave us some brilliant new insights into our favourite characters, from Mr and Mrs Bennet to Lizzy herself – revealing new ways of understanding them and new levels to Jane Austen’s great genius in creating them.

Whilst a small group enjoyed this event onsite in Chawton, it was written and filmed for you, our online audience. So grab a cup of tea, sit back and enjoy, wherever you are in the world!

🎥 The lecture will premiere on our YouTube channel on 12 October at 8pm (GMT). Subscribe to ensure you don’s miss out! 

🎫 Tickets are free but donations to the Museum are very much appreciated. 

🕓 If you’re unable to make this time slot, the film will remain on our YouTube channel for you to catch up at a later date.
