Synopsis

This study explores the careers of five influential women writers of the Restoration and 18th and early 19th centuries. Through detailed discussion of the lives and work of Aphra Behn (1640-1689), Delarivier Manley (1663-1724), Charlotte Lennox (1729-1804), Frances Burney (1752-1840), and Maria Edgeworth (1768?-1849), Catherine Gallagher reveals the underlying connections between the increasing prestige of female authorship, the economy and debt, and the rise of the novel.
