Summary
"The events of the French Revolution resulted in a reactionary backlash in Britain in the 1790s, which had radical implications not only for social policy and legislation, but also for the form and content of British literature." "In Modes of Discipline, Lisa Wood examines British women writers who opposed what they construed as the "poison" of revolutionary thought, and who used the novel form in their search for a vehicle to carry a counterrevolutionary "antidote" Reading the writings of Jane West, Hannah More, Elizabeth Hamilton, Mary Brunton, Laetitia Matilda Hawkins, and Iane Porter in relation to each other and to those of their anti-revolutionary contemporaries, this impeccably researched and imaginatively engaged book shows that these writers developed an alternative feminine - but not feminist - discourse within the broader context of conservative print culture. At the same time, Dr. Wood demonstrates that these attempts to convey a counterrevolutionary lesson resulted in generic innovation that helped to shape the form of the British novel in unexpected and far-reaching ways."--Jacket
