Anna Seward : a constructed life : a critical biography by Teresa Barnard( )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examining the unpublished letters and manuscripts of the poet Anna Seward (1742-1809), Teresa Barnard provides a fresh perspective on her life and historical milieu that restores and problematizes Seward's carefully constructed narrative of her life. Barnard's biography of Seward not only challenges what is known about Seward, but provides new information about the lives and times of eighteenth-century writers
British women and the intellectual world in the long eighteenth century by Teresa Barnard( Book )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Highlighting the remarkable women who found ways around the constraints placed on their intellectual growth, this collection of essays shows how their persistence opened up attributes of potent female imagination, radical endeavour, literary vigour, and self-education that compares well with male intellectual achievement in the long eighteenth century. Disseminating their knowledge through literary and documentary prose with unapologetic self-confidence, women such as Anna Barbauld, Anna Seward, Elizabeth Inchbald and Joanna Baillie usurped subjects perceived as masculine to contribute to scientific, political, philosophical and theological debate and progress. This multifaceted exploration goes beyond traditional readings of women’s creativity to add fresh, at times controversial, insights into the female view of the intellectual world. Bringing together leading experts on British women’s lives, work and writings, the volume seeks to rediscover women’s appropriations of masculine disciplines and to examine their interventions into the intellectual world. Through their engagement with a unique perspective on women’s lives and achievements, the essays make important contributions to the existing body of knowledge in this important area that will inform future scholarship

Anna Seward, eighteenth-century poet, biographer, and letter-writer, wrote her juvenile journal in the form of a series of letters to an imaginary friend, "Emma". Seward intended the letters as an autobiographical account of the period of her youth before she achieved fame as a published poet. Towards the end of her life, she collated her works for posthumous publication, bequeathing the manuscripts to Walter Scott. However, as Scott disliked much of the anecdotal substance of the juvenile letters, he censored them, removing over half of the contents before publication. This volume restores th
