From the cover: “I am ashamed to remember, wrote C. S. Lewis, for how many years, as a boy and a young man, I read nineteenth-century fiction, without noticing how often its language differed from ours. In recent years, several titles in the Language Library have been concerned to illuminate these differences. This book considers the language of Thackeray in much the same way that G. L. Brook scrutinised that of Dickens, and is also, in many ways, a sequel to the author’s own Jane Austen’s English.
