|At the heart of our relationship with Jane Austen lies a paradox. We want to preserve her world, not only the wit and the insight but also her values, yet we also want to make her pertinent to our own lives. Screen adaptations over the years reveal how we sometimes struggle with this. Key scenes and plots are altered from the original to make an easier match with modern concepts of morality and social justice. We will examine this process, with examples, and also talk about the post-colonial approach to fiction including The Widow’s Fire.|
