52 in 52 week 52, 2020: Persuasion

by Jane Austen, fiction

My favorite Austen novel, Persuasion explores constancy versus fickleness, lasting affection as opposed to youthful infatuation, the things we do to please family rather than satisfy our own desires. As always, there is a satisfying ending, in this case two endings, both penned by Austen, one only shortly after the other’s completion.
