Abstract

Many critics enthuse about Jane Austen’s ‘style’. They say that she wrote superb English, and that her style is ‘perfect’, ‘marvellous’ and ‘wonderful’. I agree with them, but for students of literature this is only a beginning. We want to understand how she achieves her effects, and define what those effects are. In other words, we want to appreciate how her style works, in precise detail.
