Here is my best explanation:

'12a 15' is the definition.
I know nothing about this answer so I cannot judge whether it can be defined by this definition.

'banter? none affected' is the wordplay.
'affected' indicates anagramming the letters.
'banter'+'none'='banternone'
'banternone' with letters rearranged gives 'ANNE BRONTE'.
