Friday Fun – TED-Ed Video

The wicked wit of Jane Austen delivered by Iseult Gillespie at TED-Ed

Whether she’s describing bickering families, quiet declarations of love, or juicy gossip, Jane Austen’s writing often feels as though it was written just for you. Her dry wit and cheeky playfulness informs her heroines, whose conversational tone welcomes readers with a conspiratorial wink. Iseult Gillespie explores the sly societal satire and unique tongue-in-cheek humor of Jane Austen. [Directed by Compote Collective, narrated by Bethany Cutmore-Scott, music by BigBanda Soundscapers].
