For next week, we'll watch the 1995 adaptation of Persuasion starring Amanda Root and Ciaran Hinds (which I personally think is the best Austen adaptation ever!). Be sure you've finished the book by next week, since we'll discuss the ending in more detail, and particularly, Austen's original ending which you can find directly following the final chapter in our book.
Also, start writing--or developing ideas towards writing--your final paper. Don't write it at the last minute! Use your previous writings, especially Paper #3, as material, and feel free to borrow whatever you think works. I look at writing as a process of writing, revision, and adaptation, so it's no crime to pilfer from previous papers or even use entire paragraphs! Writing is never "new," just as long as it's your own writing you're stealing from. Please let me know if you run into problems or difficulties. See you next week!
