About this product
- DescriptionThis important study investigates how Austen worked with, and played upon, the cracks and faultlines which time had uncovered in the ideals of polite conversation. In a wide-ranging argument combining intellectual history and literary stylistics, Bharat Tandon explores such activities as flirtation and ventriloquism, in order to show how a form of conversational morality is what Austen's vels both describe and set out to achieve.
- Author BiographyBharat Tandon teaches at St. Anne's College, University of Oxford, and is the former External Director of Studies in English at Emmanuel College, University of Cambridge.
