"A courageous, wise, and witty book about the lives and writings of two father-identified women....The book's rejection of familial thinking manifests an exciting change in the object and aims of feminist criticism."--Eighteenth-Century Studies
"A valuable addition to women's studies collections."--Choice
"Kowaleski-Wallace has convincingly shown, however, that the sociopolitical agendas of both writers are deeply and pervasively involved with issues of gender. In the process, she has also established and original and productive frame for rethinking gender relations in their bearing on an era of profound social change."--Alan Richardson
"A useful text...Her thesis works well with the novels she has chosen to examine (selected ones by Charlotte Lennox, Samuel Richardson, Henry Fielding, Anne Radcliffe, Jane Austen, and Sir Walter Scott). She desires to tell the truth about desire, and she does so."--Tulsa Studies in Women'sliterature
"Kowaleski-Wallace's analysis of the class bias that informs More's patriarchal complicity is well argued."--South Atlantic Review
What does it mean for a woman writer to identify strongly with her father and with the patriarchal tradition he represents? What factors-psychological, social, historical, or otherwise-motivate such identification? What are the consequences? This engrossing study addresses these questions through a close examination of lives and selected works of two late eighteenth-century women writers, Hannah More and Maria Edgeworth, both of whom were complicitous with their fathers' politics.
