Current feminist theory has developed powerful explanations for some women writers' rebellion against patriarchy. But other women writers did not rebel; rather, they supported and celebrated patriarchy. Examining the lives and selected works of two late eighteenth-century writers, Hannah More and Maria Edgeworth, this book explores what it means for a woman writer to identify with her father and the patriarchal tradition he represents. Kowaleski-Wallace exposes the psychological, social, and historical factors that motivated such an identification, and reveals the consequences that result from being a "daddy's girl."

From the Back Cover:

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.
