Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Memoirs of Emma Courtney is one of the most articulate and detailed expressions of the yearnings and frustrations of a woman living in late eighteenth-century English society. It questions marital arrangements and courtship rituals by depicting a woman who actively pursues the man she loves.

In this first fully annotated edition of a key sentimental novel, Hays reveals the lamentable gap between what women are and what women ought to be by exploring the links between sexaulity and desire, and economic and social freedom.
