Meet the Author

Frances Burney (1752 – 1840), also known as Fanny Burney and
after marriage as Madame d’Arblay, was born in King’s Lynn,
England, on 13 June 1752, to musical historian Dr. Charles Burney
(1726-1814) and Mrs. Esther Sleepe Burney (1725-62). The third of
six children, she was self-educated, and began writing what she
called her “scribblings” at the age of ten. She married in 1793 at
forty-two, to a French exile, General Alexandre D'Arblay. Their
only son, Alexander, was born in 1794. After a lengthy writing
career, and travels that took her to France for over ten years, she
settled in Bath, England, where she died on 6 January 1840. Frances
Burney was a novelist, diarist, and playwright. In total, she wrote
four novels, eight plays, one biography, and twenty volumes of
journals and letters. In addition to the critical respect she
receives for her own writing, she is recognized as a literary
precursor to prominent authors who came after her, including Jane
Austen and William Makepeace Thackeray. She published her first
novel Evelina anonymously in 1778. When its authorship was
revealed, it brought her almost immediate fame, due to its unique
narrative and comic strengths. She followed with Cecilia in 1782,
Camilla in 1796, and The Wanderer in 1814. All of Burney’s novels
explore the lives of English aristocrats, and satirize their social
pretensions and personal foibles, with an eye to larger questions
such as the politics of female identity. With one exception, Burney
never succeeded in having her plays performed, largely due to
objections from her father who thought that publicity from such an
effort would be damaging to her reputation. The exception was Edwy
and Elgiva, which unfortunately was not well received by the public
and closed after the first night’s performance. Although her novels
were hugely popular during her lifetime, following her death
Burney’s reputation as a writer suffered at the hands of
biographers and critics who felt that the extensive diaries,
published posthumously in 1841, offered a more interesting and
accurate portrait of eighteenth century life. Today, however,
critics are returning to her novels and plays with a renewed
interest in her perspective on the social lives and struggles of
women in a predominantly male-oriented culture.
