Summary
"A constellation of essays on authorship, politics and history, British Women's Writing in the Long Eighteenth Century presents the latest thinking on gender and women's writing in the long eighteenth century, areas of work which have moved decisively from the periphery to the centre of eighteenth-century studies. This collection highlights the ways in which women writers and their work were key to the worlds of politics and letters, integrated rather than separate from their central concerns, challenging past paradigms which too sharply divided - and gendered - public and private spheres and discourses."--BOOK JACKET
