Review:

"This is an ambitious and very attractive volume on a topic very much at the cutting edge of research in the 18th and 19th century, which will be widely reviewed and, I am sure, added to the list of essential reading for women's writing courses and life writing courses." Cora Kaplan, Emeritus Professor of English, University of Southampton, UK

"These analyses of life writings - secular and spiritual, conservative and rebellious - will be valuable to literary scholars interested in genre creation and historians using autobiographical material." Recommended by Choice

"Space precludes mentioning all twelve essays, but they are all fine pieces of scholarship. It is to the credit of the editors, Cook

and Culley, and all the contributors that the chapters so consistently and productively speak to each other. Women's Life Writing

will undoubtedly become an important model and guide for future scholarship in the field." Melanie Bigold, SHARP News
