Synopsis: Throughout her fifty-year career, Harriet Martineau's prolific literary output was matched only by her exchanges with a range of high-profile British, American and European correspondents. The Collected Letters of Harriet Martineau is the first scholarly edition of her extant letters. Scattered throughout the United States and United Kingdom, almost all of the 2,000 letters that appear in this collection are published here for the very first time. Newly transcribed in five volumes, the set focuses on the letters written by Martineau, contextualizing the correspondence through annotation of the highest standard. In her correspondence Martineau comments freely on such topics as the Reform Bill controversy, the Poor Law reform, the American Civil War, American abolitionism and slavery. Besides giving a unique insight into Martineau's domestic relationships, Martineau's correspondence with Florence Nightingale on issues such as health reform uniquely blends personal and professional matters. Throughout her life, as this edition shows, Martineau managed to exert her influence on political and social circles, even from her distant Lake District home. This is essential reading for every scholar of Victorian biography. Yet given the broad content of Martineau's correspondence, it is also relevant to research in the wider disciplines of nineteenth-century studies, women's studies, literature, empire studies, slavery and cultural studies.
