in consequence of the missive, I feel as if JA was parodying her own novels., penned by Clementa
I have read some of Anne Radcliffe's MoU and the style of language is clearly an influence on JA. I think that JA is mocking both Gothics and some of her earlier works(as one of the other posters pointed out-sorry,not sure who!). Jane Austen,IMHO,is a writer who does take herself too seriously-as it was said in another book"what are we for but to make sport for our neighbors and laugh at them in our turn?". Hope I quoted correctly!
