Professor Caroline Franklin of the Department of English Language and Literature at Swansea University will give a Department of Adult and Continuing Education lecture on "Jane Austen and Lord Byron".  

This unlikely couple appeared on the literary scene at exactly the same time and competed for the same Regency women readers.  Both are still well read today and remembered as icons of romantic love. What did they think of each other? How did they represent marriage, women and sexuality?

To hear more, attend this lecture on Thursday 14 November 2013 from 3.45 pm – 5.30 pm at the Discovery Room, Swansea Central Library, Civic Centre, Oystermouth Road, Swansea, SA1 3SN.
