Editorial Reviews

Review

"D. A. Miller's exquisite, original, meditative, and provocative volume [is] written in a style that is like a collision between Austen herself and the more epigrammatic modes of Roland Barthes. ... Miller is continually provocative, but in an allusive, highly crafted--stylish--way: writing which is the product of deep immersion in Austen's fiction and its affect."

From the Back Cover

"In addition to being an essential book on Austen, this is the smartest, not to mention the most stylish, discussion of style there is. Miller approaches this forbiddingly elusive concept and beautifully captures its weirdness and its emotional complexity. This book has a heart, as well as an art, to go with its brains."--Joseph Litvak, Novel

"D. A. Miller's exquisite, original, meditative, and provocative volume [is] written in a style that is like a collision between Austen herself and the more epigrammatic modes of Roland Barthes. . . . Miller is continually provocative, but in an allusive, highly crafted-stylish-way: writing which is the product of deep immersion in Austen's fiction and its affect."--Kate Flint, Studies in English Literature, 1500-1900

Format: Hardcover
This is probably the most thoughtful and intelligent book that has ever been written on Austen. Miller addresses the basic problems that any critic of Austen's work must consider -- particularly the narrative stance for which she is famous -- and he carefully examines its component parts and its preconditions. It will be impossible for any future commentators on Austen to proceed without taking account of Miller's insights.

18 of 24 people found the following review helpful By J. Grossman on October 13, 2004
Format: Hardcover
Austen's achievement is to create a kind of magically anonymous narrator, one whose judgements and descriptions never seem to proceed from a person freighted with human foibles, but from an untouchably transcendent wit, and Miller's book teaches us how and why this is. It is a tour de force.
