Fair Philosopher: Eliza Haywood and the Female Spectator

Synopsis

The first sustained scholarly study of The Female Spectator, brings together an impressive collection of established and upcoming Haywood scholars who challenge much of the received opinion about this ground - breaking journal. Several of the essays show that Haywood's periodical was far more political than is generally thought, that its connections to her career as a novelist are more intimate than has been recognized, and that The Spectator was a target as well as a model. Other essays examine its position in a developing print tradition. There is much new in these pages, and this collection makes a convincing argument that Haywood's periodical deserves far more critical attention that it has received so far.
