Eugenia and Adelaide, a novel

Fitzer, Anna

This is the first modern edition of Eugenia and Adelaide, a novel written by Frances Sheridan, née Chamberlaine, to be published since the original, posthumous publication of 1791. Sheridan completed the novel when she fifteen years old, and it clearly establishes the literary talent she later demonstrated as one of the most successful novelists and dramatists of the mid-eighteenth century. Complete with an extensive introduction, and editorial notes, this reset text presents a unique opportunity to explore Sheridan's contribution to our current understanding of the history of women's writing, and of reading tastes and practices in the long eighteenth century.
