The old manor house by Charlotte Smith( Book )

55 editions published between 1793 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Old Manor House (1794), Charlotte Smith combines elements of the romance, the Gothic, recent history, and culture to produce both a social document and a compelling novel. A "property romance," the love story of Orlando and Monimia revolves around the Manor House as inheritable property. In situating their romance as dependent on the whims of property owners, Smith critiques a society in love with money at the expense of its most vulnerable members, the dispossessed. --www.barnesandnoble.com
Emmeline: the orphan of the castle by Charlotte Smith( Book )

92 editions published between 1788 and 2016 in English and French and held by 895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The plot of Charlotte Smith's autobiographical first novel Emmeline (1788) includes the usual thrills of the eighteenth-century courtship novel: abduction, duels, and a "fairy tale princess." At the same time, the novel satirically reworks such literary conventions by focusing on the dangers of early engagement and marriage, and challenges a social and legal system in which women are inherently illegitimate subjects

"In Charlotte Smith's biography, her sister Catherine Ann Dorset reported that "Mrs. Smith left no posthumous works whatsoever. The sweepings of her closet were, without exception, committed to the flames." Despite her family's diligence in destroying her papers, nearly five hundred of Smith's letters survived in twenty-two libraries, archives, and private collections. The present edition makes available most of these previously unpublished letters to publishers, patrons, solicitors, relatives, and friends." "One of the most popular poets of her time, Charlotte Smith revived the sonnet form in England, influencing Wordsworth and Keats. Equally popular as a novelist, she experimented with many genres, and even her children's books were highly regarded by her contemporaries. Smith conducted her public life in the face of profound personal troubles. With little support beyond her wits and her unwavering will, she almost single-handedly provided for a large family. The letters yield a wealth of hitherto unknown facts about her miserable failed marriage, her poor health, her poverty, and her twelve children's lives, marriages, and deaths. Her letters enlarge our understanding of her literary achievement, for they show the private world of spirit, determination, anger, and sorrow in which she wrote." "Covering Smith's entire career from 1784 to 1806, the letters also provide new details on the publication of all but two of her twenty-two titles. Smith reveals her customary approaches to composing, dealing with publishers, and exploring new ideas for marketable books. Through correspondence with literary supporters such as William Hayley and aristocratic patrons such as the duchess of Devonshire and the earl of Egremont, the letters also shed light on women and patronage in the late eighteenth century." "As this volume was going to press, the Petworth House Archives turned up fifty-six additional lost letters not seen in at least one hundred years. Most are from Smith's early career, along with two letters to her troublesome husband, Benjamin. The archives also preserved fifty letters by Benjamin, the only ones by him known to have survived. Two letters from Benjamin to Charlotte are reprinted in full, and generous excerpts from the rest are included in footnotes, bringing a shadowy figure to life."--Jacket

The young philosopher by Charlotte Smith( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Young Philosopher, George Delmont embraces an agrarian life and devotes himself to the pursuit of knowledge. But it is George's love Medora Glenmorris and her mother Laura who provide the emotional core of the novel. Contrasting the pain and suffering of individuals with the idealism of the French Revolution and the hope provided by glimpses of life in America, Smith exposes philosophical enlightenment as an ineffective weapon for fighting the widespread corruption of English society. The early novels of Charlotte Smith (1749-1806) were precursors of the gothic tradition that came to d

"This Broadview edition includes a critical introduction and primary source material relating to the novel's reception, its political contexts (writings by Reverend Richard Price, Edmund Burke, Mary Wollstonecraft, and Thomas Paine), and the author's life."--Jacket
Letters of a solitary wanderer, 1800 by Charlotte Smith( Book )

35 editions published between 1800 and 2005 in English and German and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Letters of a solitary wanderer (the title comes from Dr. Johnson) appeared first in three volumes, two more being added later from another publisher. These first three each contain an independent and contrasting romance, set in Gothic Yorkshire, Jamaica, and sixteenth-century France respectively. They are a development in kind from Smith's earlier novels, sharing for instance, as the title indicates, the theme of displacement. In his introduction Jonathan Wordsworth shows how they relate to Lewis, Radcliffe and Scott; and also how, two years after the publication of Lyrical ballads, there is a new concern for simplicity, naturalness and feeling
