Private Sphere to World Stage from Austen to Eliot.
Focuses on 19th century women writers including Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Emily Bronte, Elizabeth Gaskell and Harriet Beecher Stowe, George Eliot. The author shows how women writers during this period moved from near-anonymity to equality with their male counterparts. She discusses the influence of earlier writers such as Samuel Richardson and, for Austen, Charlotte Ramsay Lennox. In the end, this book is relevant today as the female voice continues to emerge around the world. Reduced price due to previous owner marginalia (pencil). Ashgate, Hampshire and Burlington, VT. 2008.
