General Consent in Jane Austen: A Study in Dialogism.
Is Austen conservative or a subversive feminist? Boosted by Marilyn Butler's seminal 1975 work, critics have placed Austen firmly in the camp of their choosing, and mined her work more or less successfully to prove their irreconcilable points. Seeber focuses on the interactions of dialog throughout Austen's works - Juvenilia, Lady Susan, the novels - and finds an Austen not subject to such petty debates after all, and yet not apolitical.
