This thesis analyses techniques employed by Jane Austen in Emma and Sense & Sensibility to control the readers when they make judgements about characters and events.The thesis will argue that the point of view used in these two novels to present events and characters has great influence upon readers. In addition, the role of skilful use of irony by Austen, and witholding of information by characters and author in keeping readers alert will be analysed.
