Review

"This richly supplemented edition will be an invaluable resource..." -- Margaret Higonnet, University of Connecticut

"This splendid edition contains a brilliant introduction, very helpful annotations, and is packed with contextual materials...another Broadview gem." -- Harriet Kramer Linkin, New Mexico State University

From the Publisher

The Broadview Editions series is an effort to represent the ever-changing canon of literature in English by bringing together texts long regarded as classics with valuable, lesser-known literature. Newly type-set and produced on high-quality paper in trade paperback format, the Broadview Editions series is a delight to handle as well as to read.

Each volume includes a full introduction, chronology, bibliography, and explanatory notes along with a variety of documents from the period, giving readers a rich sense of the world from which the work emerged.

4.0 out of 5 stars Letters from France 13 Aug 2003
Format:Paperback
This collection includes Williams's most compelling letters; extracts from her very early letters, written upon her arrival, and extracts from the reign of the evil Robespierre. Williams writes not as a political champion of the revolution but chiefly as a woman which, according to her contemporary critics, was often her downfall. To us though this style, which often intertwines itself with romance and the novel, is attractive and offers an alternative perspective on the events in France. Williams's ability to relate to the French people is admirable. Not only is she a Francophile but in her own way she is also a feminist, putting her female stamp on the masculine domain of politics and revolution. If you like the idea of a woman writing as she wishes and doing as she wishes against
a backdrop of revolutionary fervour, then Williams will win your favour.

By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
For the serious student of the French Revolution and the discourse surrounding it, Williams letters, along with the wealth of accompanying materials included in this volume, offer a fascinating insight. Kudos to the staff that assembled this piece of work.
