Jane Austen's Style: Narrative Economy and the Novel's Growth.
Toner argues that several techniques unique to Austen's fiction expand the novel's capacity to depict consciousness, an analysis that holds implications for the study of fiction other than Austen's. Her discussion of these techniques is accessible and entertaining, and she uses examples across Austen's writing, including the juvenilia and fragments, to support her points.
