Abstract

This essay reads The Spoils of Poynton as a Modernist re-rendering of the Austenian marriage plot, tracing the connections between what is not narrated and genre. The coupling of Northanger Abbey and Spoils, of Catherine Moreland and Fleda Vetch, highlights how James pushes narrative boundaries, creating a "neo-narrative."
