A Simple Story (Oxford World's Classics)

A Simple Story (Oxford World's Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Miss Milner announces her passion for her guardian, a Catholic priest, she breaks through the double barrier of his religious vocation and 18th-century British society's standards of proper womanly behavior. Like other women writers of her time, Elizabeth Inchbald concentrates on the question of a woman's "proper education," and her sureness of touch and subtlety of characterization prefigure Jane Austen's work.

Synopsis:

When Miss Milner announces her passion for her guardian, a Catholic priest, she breaks through the double barrier of religious vocation and society's standards of "proper womanly behaviour". Her love is legitimized when Dorriforth is released from his vows, but his stern morals remain.
