9780807897171: The Education of the Heart: The Correspondence of Rachel Mordecai Lazarus and Maria Edgeworth

In 1815 a young North Carolina schoolteacher who was Jewish wrote to the celebrated Maria Edgeworth to ask why British novelists wrote in such a prejudiced manner about Jews. Maria was so moved by the letter that she set to work on a novel to make amends, and <3>Harrington<1> was published in 1817. The literary exchange that resulted grew into a friendship that lasted until Rachel's death in 1838, and the families continued to correspond until 1942.

Originally published in 1977.

Review:

Thanks to MacDonald and the simple, enduring warmth and intelligence of letters such as these, which give us intimate glimpses of people we had not known we wanted to know, we have ways to move into history on a first-class ticket." -- The New Republic
