Persuasion may probably depict the story of any grown up. I think that at some point in our lives, we’ve been persuaded long enough. Socially, spiritually, and significantly and usually – emotionally.
Persuasion mainly revolved about the intertwined lives in relation to Anne Elliot. It is interesting to note that in one chapter, she was described as “She was just Anne”. Yes, she is. A sensible woman, have been persuaded to break an engagement, and holds an old flame in her heart.
Anne Elliot was persuaded by an elder family friend, Lady Russel to break off her engagement with Frederick Wenthworth because he is deemed not acceptable per family’s standards. After 8 years, they met again. And the rest followed. The story may seem simple. But Jane Austen really has her way of telling it in a classic and engaging way.
