Examines the use of humor in Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, George Eliot, and other British writers, particularly its gender basis. Finds that much of the humor is encoded such that it is invisible to men, but to women provides a critique of the conventions oppressive to women and suggests alternative perspectives. Annotation c.
