Jane Austen's readers continue to find delight in the justness of her moral and psychological discriminations. But for most readers, her values have been a phenomenon more felt than fully apprehended. In this book, Stuart M.
Tave identifies and explains a number of the central concepts across Austen's novels--examining how words like "odd," "exertion," and, of course, "sensibility," hold the key to understanding the Regency author's language of moral values. Tracing the force and function of these words from Sense and Sensibility to Persuasion, Tave invites us to consider the peculiar and subtle ways in which word choice informs the conduct, moral standing, and self-awareness of Austen's remarkable characters.
