Persuasion is Jane Austen's last completed novel. Besides the theme of persuasion, the novel evokes other topics, such as the Royal Navy, in which two of Jane Austen's brothers ultimately rose to the rank of admiral. As in Northanger Abbey, the superficial social life of Bath—well known to Austen, who spent several relatively unhappy and unproductive years there—is portrayed extensively and serves as a setting for the second half of the book. In many respects, Persuasion marks a break with Austen's previous works, both in the more biting, even irritable satire directed at some of the novel's characters and in the regretful, resigned outlook of its otherwise admirable heroine, Anne Elliot, in the first part of the story. Against this is set the energy and appeal of the Royal Navy, which symbolises for Anne and the reader the possibility of a more outgoing, engaged, and fulfilling life, and it is this worldview which triumphs for the most part at the end of the novel. More than eight years before the novel opens, Anne Elliot, then a lovely, thoughtful, warm-hearted 19-year old, accepted a proposal of marriage from the handsome young naval officer Frederick Wentworth. He was clever, confident, and ambitious, but poor and with no particular family connections to recommend him. Sir Walter, Anne's fatuous, snobbish father and her equally self-involved older sister Elizabeth were dissatisfied with her choice, maintaining that he was no match for an Elliot of Kellynch Hall, the family estate. Her older friend and mentor, Lady Russell, acting in place of Anne's late mother, persuaded her to break the engagement, for she, too, felt it was an imprudent match that was beneath Anne. Now 27 and still unmarried, Anne re-encounters her former love when his sister and brother-in-law, the Crofts, take out a lease on Kellynch. Wentworth is now a captain and wealthy from maritime victories in the Napoleonic wars. However, he has not forgiven Anne for rejecting him. While publicly declaring that he is ready to marry any suitable young woman who catches his fancy, he privately resolves that he is ready to become attached to any appealing young woman with the exception of Anne Elliot. The self-interested machinations of Anne's father, her older sister Elizabeth, Elizabeth's widowed friend Mrs. Clay, and William Elliot (Anne's cousin and her father's heir) constitute important subplots.

Magisterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Komparatistik, Vergleichende Literaturwissenschaft, Note: 2,0, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universitat Bonn (Komparatistik), Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Diese Arbeit befasst sich Schwerpunktmassig mit den Werken Jane Austens Emma, Pride and Prejudice und Persuasion und deren filmische Umsetzung (Adaption) von Robert Z. Leonard (1940), Andrew Davies (1996) und Roger Michell (1995)., Abstract: Seit der Durchsetzung des Tonfilms Anfang der 30er Jahre entstanden bisher uber zwanzig Filmadaptationen von Jane Austens Romanen. 1940 wurde in Hollywood die erste Verfilmung ("Pride and Prejudice") produziert, die sowohl in Amerika als auch in Europa grosse Erfolge feiern durfte. Nach einigen Jahrzehnten der Ruhe folgten schliesslich zwischen 1970 und 1986 die ersten britischen Antworten: sieben Fernseh-Filme und Mini-Serien, hauptsachlich von der BBC produziert. Das Interesse an Jane Austens Romanen und deren Adaptationsmoglichkeiten stieg weiterhin an, und so wurden allein zwischen 1995 und 1996 sechs weitere Filme produziert, davon drei aus Amerika, die restlichen aus England. Diese neue Welle von Adaptationen trug dazu bei, die Jane Austen-Kritik auf andere mediale Formen ausdehnen zu konnen. Drei dieser Produktionen erreichten einen hohen Grad an kommerziellem Erfolg: die BBC-A&E Miniserie "Pride and Prejudice" (September 1995, Davies/ Langton), die Mirage-Columbia Verfilmung "Sense and Sensibility" (Dezember 1995, Thompson/Lee) und die Miramax-Produktion "Emma" (Juli 1996, McGrath). Auch die eher ein jungeres Publikum ansprechende, moderne Adaptation von Emma unter dem Titel "Clueless" (Juli 1995, Heckerling) von Paramount Pictures zeigte, dass Austens Roman "proves itself to be surprisingly malleable and readily adaptable to the contemporary period."5 Weitere Austen-Adaptationen, die nicht an dem Erfolg ihrer Vorganger anschliessen konnten, aber doch die positive Aufmerksamkeit der Kritiker

Witty, romantic and insightful, this novel retells the love affair at the heart of Jane Austen's Persuasion from the perspective of the suitor--Captain Wentworth. Written in the language of the era, Captain Wentworth's Persuasion re-creates the original style, themes and sardonic humor of Jane Austen's novel while turning the entire tale on its head in a most engaging fashion. Readers hear Captain Wentworth's side of this tangled story while gazing into his thoughts and emotions. Wentworth initially suffers rejection and frustration because the titled Elliots do not consider him good enough for their daughter Anne. Despite her feelings for Wentworth, Anne allows others to persuade her to break off their engagement. Eight years later, when Wentworth returns from fighting against Napoleon's army, the difficult years of war have reversed fortunes. Now it is he who is rich, having won many prizes in battle, while the Elliots are deeply in debt and in danger of losing their good name. Will Wentworth seek revenge by choosing another woman over his former love? Can he walk away from Anne, or will the memory of her lips and her touch capture his love once again?
