Publisher's Comments

British and North American scholars of literature look at specific authors and works, and general features of women's writing from 1660 to 1830. Their topics include the novels of Sarah Scott, ivory miniatures and the art of Jane Austen, Hobbesian obligation and the durability of romance in Aphra Behn's Love-Letters, and Hannah More and conservative feminism. The 11 papers are from a July 2003 conference at the opening of the Chawton House Library in Hampshire. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
