Passion & Principle: The Loves and Lives of Regency Women.

SKU: 10762

Historical novelist Hodge writes a lively history book discussing how Regency women experienced love in a world made to deny them rights as individuals. The daughters of George III, barred from marriage by their father, contrast dramatically with the royal mistresses. Mary Elgin, Caroline Lamb, Emma, Lady Hamilton, Mary Wollstonecraft, and Hester Stanhope are some of the women studied through this lens. How did their relationships with love affect their positions in society? Fun, gossipy, yet very serious book. John Murray, London, 1996, 230 pgs, Hb, Dj. Very good condition. USED. $45.00
