Linked together as the two great anti-Romantics of the early 19th century, Jane Austen and George Crabbe published all their major works during the so-called 'Romantic Age'. Whilst critics have hinted at this connection, it has never been fully explored until now in this study by Colin Winborn.

Takes economic ideas and applies it to behavior in Austen novels.
Darcy and Elizabeth are economists of words (80). "The association of the concise with a certain strength -- the strength of a close guardedness which conceals, makes private, renders self-sufficient -- owes to Rousseau's Du contract social ou Principes du Droit politique.

Knightley is an independent spirit. Conviction of mind = exertion of limb (128). Over-proximity exacerbates the the social pressures of Highbury (77).
