The Ingredients of a Fantastic Piece of Literature - ... Even if the indirect characterization failed, she had another method of getting the attention of the readers.

The characters change of scene constantly and the setting is also changed as the chapters advance. Each character has at least one event involving them, either the moving out of the Elliot family, the arrival of the Captains, the fall of Louisa or the numerous social events throughout the novel....   [tags: Jane Austen's characterization] 1152 words
