Editorial Reviews

Internet Bookwatch
In Women, Revolution, And The Novels Of The 1790s, Linda Lang-Peralta draws upon the scholarly contributions of Barbara M. Benedict, Katherine Binhammer, Catherine H. Decker, Carl Fisher, Shawn Lisa Maurer, Clara D. McLean, Glynis Ridley, and Eleanor Ty in a collection of essays focusing on sub-genres of the novel form that evolved during the end of the 18th century. These were novels (frequently written by women) that reflected the intersections between literature and popular culture. Using representative readings of theses works and current academic thinking on gender and class, the contributors offer a new and challenging perspective on the novels of the 1790s. Women, Revolution, And The Novels Of The 1790s is highly recommended reading for students of women's literature, women's studies, and the influence of literature upon popular culture.
