British Women Writers and the Writing of History, 1670-1820.

SKU: 13671-1

Five writers - Lucy Hutchinson, Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, Charlotte Lennox, Catherine Macaulay, Hester Lynch Piozzi, and Jane Austen, are examined as writers of "real solemn history" during a time when writing history was not acceptable for women. The approach is enlightening and entertaining. The section on Austen is fascinating. This copy is the first edition hardcover book with jacket, LIKE NEW. Johns Hopkins University Press. 2000. Hb, Dj.
