Overview

When More (1745-1833) published Coelebs, her only novel, in 1808, she was already well known for her many plays, poems, treatises, and tracts aimed at improving the religion, morality, and education of both upper and lower classes in English society. She is best known now, if at all, says Prior (English, Liberty U., Virginia), as a social reformer advocating conservative and anti-feminist religious ideas that are not in favor today, rather than as a woman of letters. She hopes to rebalance the perception by presenting critical responses to the novel from its appearance to the present. The text is double spaced. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
