The Historical Austen
"In a series of readings of the six completed novels, in addition to the epistolary Lady Susan and the uncompleted Sanditon, William H. Galperin offers startling new interpretations, demonstrating the extraordinary awareness that Austen maintained not only of her narrative practice - notably, free indirect discourse - but also of the novel's function as a social and political instrument."--BOOK JACKET.
