Product Description


"A book of subtlety and distinction, a reminder of just how far feminist literary scholarship has come" (Guardian)

"This book achieves far more than the rehabilitation of forgotten authors... Instead, she investigates the broader mechanisms of fame, the formation of authorial personae, and the mysterious reasons why some names rise while others fall...This is a subtle, persuasive and engrossing study" (Independent)

"Inspirational...reveals a rich history of literary women who not only made a living from writing but were treated as the equals of their male peers... [It] should be a set textbook in English classes" (Herald)

Book Description

While many nineteenth-century women writers - such as George Eliot, Mrs Gaskell, the Brontés - are now widely written about, the women who paved the way for them in the eighteenth-century are only now being given the attention they deserve.
