About this title


Peopled with such literary figures as Tennyson, Trollope, Browning, George Eliot, Henry James, and Virginia Woolf, this book provides Anne Thackeray Ritchie's complete journals written in 1864-65 and 1878, an ample selection of her most interesting letters, and a number of significant letters written to her. Because only small portions of each journal have been previously published, this important collection presents an essential document of Ritchie's inner life, especially the account of her response to her father's death.

From Library Journal:

Although an accomplished novelist, essayist, and biographer, Lady Ritchie (1837-1919) was and continues to be overshadowed by her famous father, William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-63). After their mother went insane, Anny and her sister, Minnie, grew up haphazardly, shuffled between their father and grandmother. As a young woman, Anny became especially close to her father, acting as a surrogate wife. She was devastated by his death, but it was after this that her own creativity fully emerged. Like her father, she was an astute observer and chronicler of human nature. In addition to a good portion of letters written over the course of her lifetime, this volume contains Anny's complete journal entries. She vividly depicts the vagaries of Victorian life and poignantly reflects on her own grief after her father's death. Lillian Shankman, the late NYU scholar who began editing the book, provides superb commentary and valuable biographical information. With luck, this book will renew interest in Anny and her fascinating life. Highly recommended for strong literary collections.?Diane Gardner Premo, SILS, SUNY at Buffalo
