About this title
Second edition, reprinted with corrections and additions. Of the many women who have made a place for themselves in English literary history, perhaps none has been more often the subject of controversy than Hester Lynch Piozzi 1741-1821 , the friend of Dr. Johnson, the rival of Boswell, the sprightly, irrepressible Mistress of Streatham. What was there about this 18th century brewer's wife which even now can arouse intense feelings? Why does it seem impossible to arrive at any general estimate of her character? These are some of the questions the author seeks answer in this biography. Illustrated. xix+ i , 495+ 1 pages. cloth, dust jacket. 8vo..
