The old manor house by Charlotte Smith( Book )

50 editions published between 1793 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 987 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 )

50 editions published between 1788 and 2013 in English and French and held by 814 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

The collected letters of Charlotte Smith by Charlotte Smith( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. Charlotte Smith's letters enlarge our understanding of her literary achievement, for they show the private world of spirit, determination, anger, and sorrow in which she wrote
The young philosopher by Charlotte Smith( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 310 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

Letters of a solitary wanderer, 1800 by Charlotte Smith( Book )

19 editions published between 1801 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 151 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
