Austen's skills as a writer:

"Even that is an indication of her brilliance of a writer - she's the greatest writer of dialogue in the English language ...In reality, she doesn't bother describing the dresses or the houses or what people look like - she's only interested in the psychology, not the image. It's her stylistic brilliance, not what she's actually writing about that makes her unique."

Prof John Mullan, Lord Northcliffe Professor of Modern English Literature at University College London
