Matthew Jockers - Austen and Eve

From Sunday Morning, 9:40 am on 3 March 2013

Matthew Jockers created Godot, a computer programme that has analysed themes, styles and grammar of 3500 novels published between 1780 and 1900 and found that Jane Austen was the 'Eve' of 19th Century writing - her techniques can be identified in the works of thousands of writers who came after her.
