"Austen is one of the biggest literary figures in English,” said Woloch, chair of the Department of English. "At this point, she is somewhat like Shakespeare, her centrality is so established.”
Pride and Prejudice, Austen’s most popular work, exemplifies the qualities of her storytelling.
"Pride and Prejudice has transcended the novel form and become a modern myth,” Redmond said. "Had Austen written only that work, we could still speak of her as having dramatically increased the depth and resolution of English prose.”
