Why is the novel Persuasion considered as Austen’s most maturely written novel?
As Persuasion was Austen’s last completed work, it is accepted as her most maturely written novel, showing a refinement of literary conception indicative of a woman approaching forty years of age. Her use of free indirect discourse in narrative was in full evidence by 1816.
Is Persuasion sad?
Persuasion is Austen’s last published work. She began it when she was nearly 40 years old, and when she finished it she was within a year of her death. Perhaps not surprisingly, it is one of her shortest – and it is certainly her saddest – novel. But it is also her subtlest and most impassioned.
Is Persuasion a lovers enemy?
Though the enemies to lovers trope is usually what I reach for, Persuasion is my favorite of Jane Austen’s works. There’s just something about Second Chances that provides such satisfaction, especially when handled the way Jane Austen does.
