AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN: War through the eyes of Jane Austen with Lise Rodgers

Thursday 18 Oct 2012, 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM

Against a backdrop of England’s involvement in international conflicts, Jane Austen wrote about the people and places she knew. Accused by some critics of ignoring world events, in fact her novels and letters reveal a great deal about the way her world was influenced by war.

Lise Rodgers is an accomplished Melbourne actress whose career has spanned stage, screen and radio. An interest in the world and characters of Jane Austen, is the inspiration behind her series of ‘Jane’ performances.
