Gentleman's Daughter: Women's Lives in Georgian England Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What was the life of an eighteenth-century British genteel woman like? This lively book, based on letters, diaries, and account books of over one hundred middle class women, transforms our understanding of the position of women in Georgian England.

(Vickery) has found a gold mine in the realm of women's history: letters and pocket-book diaries kept by the daughters, wives, and mothers of gentlemen of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, allowing us to hear their voices as they experience courtship, marriage, motherhood, and widowing, and to enjoy direct accounts of their domestic and social preoccupations.... Vickery's book is full of fine details and discoveries. — Claire Tomalin, Times Literary Supplement

Synopsis:

Based on a close examination of letters, diaries and account books, this study offers an insight into the intimate and everyday lives of genteel women and transforms our understanding of the position of women in this period.

Synopsis:

A lively social history about 18th century women. Based on an examination of letters and diaries. Vickery is the winner of The Wolfson History Prize 1998. "Innovative, expertly researched and luminous in style" Linda Colley, "London Review Of Books".
