Emma and Persuasion are indubitable masterpieces! In both cases Austen knew precisely where she was going and how to get there. Even though Tanner leads us to wonderful treasures in Mansfield Park in his brilliant essay, even he can't get past that last chapter.

I have a feeling Sanditon would have turned into something special if only Jane had lived longer.
