Synopsis: Eliza Haywood (1693?-1756) was the most prolific female writer of the eighteenth century, author of more than seventy-five volumes of conduct and advice literature, criticism, journalism, fiction, drama, translations, literary history, fictionalized biography, psuedo-memoirs and literary parody. Her enormous popularity in her own day is a matter of record: one scholar has demonstrated that her first novel 'share(s) with Gulliver's Travels the distinction of being the most popular English fiction of the eighteenth century before Pamela (1741)'. In our time, Haywood's interest in matters of gender and her lively, sometimes lurid, style have made her the subject of a rapidly expanding body of scholarship. According to the Modern Language Association's International Bibliography of Language and Literature, more publications about Haywood have appeared in the last decade than had appeared in the preceding twenty-five years; more than a dozen have appeared in the last few years alone. If Haywood's critical stock is soaring, her bibliographical status remains depressingly earth-bound. This series reprints non-fictional works by Haywood, with particular attention to the journalism, criticism and 'conduct and advice' material. This material is among Haywood's richest, both in terms of coverage and in terms of prose style. Here, Haywood explicates and defends the ideas about, for example, gender and culture that she develops obliquely elsewhere; here she establishes herself as an incisive commentator on eighteenth-century culture as well as a writer of sensationalistic fiction.
