About this title


An illuminating collection of writings by this remarkable early American author.

From Library Journal:

Sedgwick (1789-1867), one of America's earliest woman authors, wrote six novels and nearly 100 stories, many of which directly challenged the social and political mores of the new nation (e.g., Clarence ; The Linwoods ). Raised in a close-knit, politically active Massachusetts family (her father was a senator), Sedgwick never married. She spent much of her life defending that decision (as in Married or Single? ), claiming that "a wedding was rather a sundering than a forming of ties." Her autobiography (written for her niece Alice) and journals show that she grappled with many "modern" problems, such as her place in society. (Sedgwick's life has also been chronicled in G. Brooks's Three Wise Virgins , LJ 10/15/57.) Editor Kelly's introduction provides important background information and fills in narrative gaps. Highly recommended.
