This book offers a reinterpretation of Austen's later novels by exploring their interactions with the fiction of the 1810s. Building on recent bibliographic research into the novel, this study situates Austen in the literary marketplace and offers new insights into the nature of her 'innovation', which arises from her sensitivity to the genre.
