Women Writing about Money: Women's Fiction in England 1790-1820.
Women were often responsible for the economy of the family, but they had no legal control over money. It's not surprising that a great deal of women's novels written during this time talked about money. Austen, Edgeworth, Eliza Parsons, Sarah Green, as well as lesser known authors are examined to show how women's real life social and economic issues were dealt with in their fiction. Cambridge UP.
