Cecilia, or, Memoirs of an heiress by Fanny Burney( )

285 editions published between 1782 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 3,659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cecilia is an heiress, but will inherit her estate only if her husband consents to take her surname." "Cecilia, or Memoirs of an Heiress (1782) is an unusual and disturbing love-story. In playing on the issue of the heroine's name, the novel illustrates the high cost of a patriarchal system. Burney exhibits her comic and satiric powers in depicting Cecilia's dismaying entry into the gilded fashionable world. Cecilia's experiences also bring her into contact with the poor and the low; running through the social analysis is an almost Dickensian forceful sympathy for those whose place in the structure of things is taken for granted. Controversial in its time, and much admired by writers as diverse as Edmund Burke, Mary Wollstonecraft, and Choderlos de Laclos, Cecilia still retains its freshness." "This edition presents Cecilia as it first appeared in 1782, indicating changes Burney made to later editions. It includes Burney's cancelled 'Introduction', printed (and annotated) here for the first time, as transcribed from the manuscript."--Jacket

Camilla : a picture of youth by Fanny Burney( )

7 editions published between 1796 and 2017 in English and held by 1,307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Camilla, subtitled A Picture of Youth, is a novel by Frances Burney, published in 1796. Jane Austen referred to Camilla and other novels in her novel, Northanger Abbey: "And what are you reading, Miss" Oh! It is only a novel replies the young lady, while she lays down her book with affected indifference, or momentary shame. It is only Cecilia, or Camilla, or Belinda or, in short, only some work in which the greatest powers of the mind are displayed, in which the most thorough knowledge of human nature, the happiest delineation of its varieties, the liveliest effusions

The wanderer, or, Female difficulties by Fanny Burney( Book )

95 editions published between 1814 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Wanderer or Female Difficulties is the tale of a penniless emigree from Revolutionary France trying to earn her living in England while guarding her own secrets. Combining the best elements of the Gothic and historical novels, this newly appreciated work is an extraordinary piece of Romantic fiction. Burney's tough comedy offers a satiric view of complacent middle-class insularity that echoes Godwin and Wollstonecraft's attacks on the English social structure. The problems of the new feminism and of the old anti-feminism are explored in the relationship between the heroine and her English patroness and rival, the Wollstonecraftian Elinor Joddrel, and the racism inherent within both the French and British empires is exposed when the emigree disguises herself as a black woman. This edition is fully annotated with appendices on the French Revolution, race relations, amusements, and geography and a previously unpublished manuscript revealing the connection between The Wanderer and Camilla

The witlings ; and, the woman-hater by Fanny Burney( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Broadview edition pairs two of Frances Burney's linked comedies. They both present the character of Lady Smatter, a "femme savante" whose lineage may be traced back to Moliere; they both centre on the misfortunes of the "elle" figure, the dispossessed heiress and wife who appears frequently in Burney's fiction; and they both criticize a culture of misogyny that breeds suspicion and resentment. The Witlings, lighter and more comic, derives from late seventeenth-century conventions; The Woman-Hater, more melodramatic, both expresses and warns against the excessive sensibility of romanticism. Together, these two plays constitute a miniature history of English drama from the Restoration to the French Revolution and beyond." "This edition contains a valuable selection of appendices, including: Burney's "Epilogue to Gerilda"; letters and diary entries; contemporary writings on comedy; and Burney's cast-list for The Woman-Hater."--Jacket
