Paper or short excerpt of a book on early modern/victorian novels

I've been trying to find this paper I remember reading once (it was probably on Metafilter) but I can't seem to find it in the search. It was about a thoroughly mediocre early modern or victorian novel which was interesting because it taught readers the conventions of novel reading. It was full of scenes that showed characters reading novels and having emotional reactions.

It might've also been in the book Professor Borges or The Bourgeois: Between History and Literature but a look through the tables of contents didn't get me too far. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
