Writers of Eighteenth-Century England
Our goal in creating this site was to provide samples of significant
women who shaped eighteenth-century English literature. Included in
these pages are nine such women, including Fanny Burney and Hester Thrale.
For each, we provided biographical information and selected works. On
one of the main are nine such women, including Fanny Burney and Hester
Thrale. For each, we provided biographical information and selected
works. On one of the main pages, we've written a summary detailing society's
view of women and their writing during this time. We've also designed
a timeline, which broadly outlines the literary history of eighteenth-century
England so that readers will be able to compare the life and works of
these women with those of better known, male authors. As a final treat,
we've added a 'conversations' page. This discusses the friendships and
groups that many of these women formed with one another. From here,
the reader can choose from three links to listen in on a "mock
conversation" that these women might have.
