Deception is a device that Austen uses to great advantage. Emma deceives herself that Mr. Elton’s attentions are for Harriet. Frank Churchill’s attentions to Emma are a deception and a misdirection (which leads one to wonder if Austen named this character with tongue in cheek).

Anita Pachecos Royalism and honor in Aphra Behns Oroonoko

A significant portion of the review is spent on summarising Pacheco's viewpoints, and presents little attempt to analyse or interpret Pacheco's observation in the backdrop of her thesis or the primary text. At many places like when describing Pacheco's comments on 'Europeanizing the African' and Behn's approach to slavery, the…
