From Julian of Norwich and the Countess of Winchelsea to Elizabeth Barrett-Browning and Edith Sitwell, this anthology of British women's writing incorporates the poems, fiction, letters, autobiography, diaries and jouralism of over 50 women writers from the 14th to the 20th centuries. The anthology brings together established literary figures and less familiar writers. It also reprints and makes widely available for the first time several key works, including: selections from Eliza Haywood's women's magazine "The Female Spectator"; the full text of Frances Sheridan's "The History of Nourjahad"; Mary Leapor's poems of working-class life in early 18th century Britain; Eliza Lynn Linton's "The Mad Willoughby's; Maria Edgeworth's influential "Letters for Literary Ladies"; Frances Trollope's thoughts on the "Domestic Manners of the Americans"; Geraldine Jewdbury's letters to Jane Welsh Carlyle; and extracts from Delariviere Manley's "The New Atlantis" and Jane Barker's "The Patchwork Screen". Chronologically arranged and designed to provide teachers and students of literature and women's studies with an easily accessible resource of the achievements of British women, the anthology also traces the developments of literary styles, themes and innovations and every author is introduced with a biographical and historical headnote and each entry is fully annotated. Dale Spender is also author of "Man Made Language", "Women of Ideas and What Men Have Done to Them", "Mothers of the Novel", "Writing a New World: Two Centuries of Australian Women's Writing". Janet Todd is author of "Women's Friendships in Literature" and "Sensibility". She is editor of "A Dictionary of British and American Women Artists, 1660-1800".
