Sarah Fielding (1710–1768) was an English author and sister of the novelist Henry Fielding. She wrote The Governess, or Little Female Academy (1749), the first novel in English aimed specifically at children. Earlier she had success with her novel The Adventures of David Simple (1744).
Jane Collier (1714–1755) was an English novelist most famous for her book An Essay on the Art of Ingeniously Tormenting (1753). She also collaborated with Sarah Fielding on her only other surviving work, The Cry (1754).
Carolyn Woodward is Associate Professor of English and Director of British and Irish Literary Studies at the University of New Mexico.
"Carolyn Woodward's edition of The Cry offers not only an accessible modern edition of this historical work, but a thoroughly researched critical introduction and a full set of annotations that show the deeply learned quality and astonishing reach of Fielding and Collier's writing. For feminist scholars and historians, her editorial effort here can hardly be overstated."―Ruth Salvaggio, author of Hearing Sappho in New Orleans: The Call of Poetry from Congo Square to the Ninth Ward
