Views of society and manners in America by Frances Wright( Book )

25 editions published between 1821 and 2013 in English and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This little volume of letters provides a very early look at the United States through the "eyes of a foreigner." The topics of the letters range freely and broadly across a large spectrum of American life. Subjects include "Appearance and manners of the young women," "Abolition of the salve-trade," "Penal code," Manners of the working classes," "American farmer" and "Indian village." It seems there was little the author did not witness and write about. This is an informative and delightful read for anyone who enjoys correspondence, history or people of strong opinion

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Frances Wright dared to take Thomas Jefferson seriously when he wrote, ' All men are created equal, ' and to assume that 'men' meant 'women' as well. Born in Scotland in 1795, she came to the United States in 1818, and spent half her adult life here, she died in Ohio in 1852, ending a lifetime devoted to promoting equality among the races and the sexes. The Marquis de Lafayette called her his adored Fanny and paid court so openly that he scandalized even his own family. The first woman to act publicly to oppose slavery. The pampered daughter of a highly stratified class society, she cast her lot with the working people, risking her health, her fortune, and her good name to realize the promise of the Declaration of Independence. With a boldness rare in women of her day, she attacked in print and in lecture halls throughout the country an economic system that allowed not only black slavery in the South but what she called wage slavery in the North. With the exception perhaps of Walt Whitman, she wrote more powerfully of sexual experience than any other American the nineteenth century
