Summary "Tave identifies and explains a number of central terms in Austen's language of values. He traces the force of words such as "limitations," "expectations," "sensibility," "odd," and "lively" to tease out the way her view of morality and the world are revealed in the plots of her six novels. He assumes the reader knows these books. Each of his chapters provides a careful close reading of one novel."--Provided by publisher.
