The History of British Women's Writing, 1750-1830. Volume Five.
British women writers consolidated their significance during the second half of the long 18th century. This period covers Bluestocking intellectualism, abolition, and new understandings of class, religion, and childhood. Women initiated new literary styles including the novel of sensibility, the elegaic sonnet, and the historical romance. Writers such as Mary Wollstonecraft, Dorothy Wordsworth, and Jane Austen may be the most familiar from this period, but are actually only representative of the flowering of creativity and importance of women's writing during this time.
