The Witlings and the Woman-Hater.
Edited by Peter Sabor and Geoffrey Sill. Did you know Fanny Burney also wrote stage comedies? Here are two of her finest, presenting the character of Lady Smatter, a "femme savante." The Woman-Hater warns against the excessive sensibility of romanticism. The Witlings harks back to late 17th century conventions. Both critizice a culture of misogyny. Includes valuable Appendices.
