Review:

"An elegantly written and useful introduction makes the most of the sketchy historical record of Davys's life." -- Choice



"The novels, along with Bowden's introduction, lend themselves to a spirited classroom discussion." -- East-Central Intelligencer



"The novels are a delightful surprise. Not merely of scholarly, historical, or contextual interest, they were entertaining and engaging -- in short, good reads." -- Jane Austen Society of North America Newsletter

About the Author:

Martha F. Bowden is assistant professor of English at Kennesaw State University.

Book Description The University Press of Kentucky, United States, 1999. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Reform d Coquette (1724) tells the story of Amoranda, a good but flighty young woman whose tendency toward careless behavior is finally tamed. Familiar Letters Betwixt a Gentleman and a Lady (1725), a satire of both political debate and women s place in society, portrays a Tory man and a Whig woman who find themselves discussing love, even though they have pledged to remain platonic friends. The Accomplish d Rake (1727) follows the exploits of Sir John Galliard from youth to manhood, when he is forced to accept responsibility for his actions. Mary Davys (1674?-1732) was one of the earliest female novelists in Britain, and after the death of her husband she supported herself by writing and running a coffeehouse. Her writing sparkles, especially in its witty dialogue. Although these three short epistolary novels are framed in a clear moral universe in which virtue is rewarded and transgressions is punished, her works are not overtly religious and punishment is as likely to come from society as from providence.
