"Dorothy Osborne, Lady Temple (1627?1695) was a British writer of letters and wife of Sir William Temple, 1st Baronet...After refusing a long string of suitors put forth by her family, including her cousin Thomas Osborne, Henry Cromwell (son of Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell) and Sir Justinian Isham, in 1654 Dorothy Osborne married Sir William Temple, a man with whom she had carried on a lengthy clandestine courtship that was largely epistolary in nature. It is for her letters to Temple, which were witty, progressive and socially illuminating, that Osborne is remembered. Only Osborne's side of the correspondence survived and comprises a collection of 77 letters held in the British Library (ADD. MSS. 33975)."--Wikipedia

An audience of one : Dorothy Osborne's letters to Sir William Temple, 1652-1654 by Carrie Hintz( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When first published in 1888, the letters of Dorothy Osborne to William Temple - written between 1652 and 1654 - created a kind of cult phenomenon in the Victorian period. Osborne and Temple, both in their early twenties, shared a romance that was opposed by their families, and Osborne herself was almost constantly under surveillance. Osborne's letters provide a rare glimpse into an early modern woman's life at a pivotal point, as she tried to find a way to marry for love as well as fulfil her obligations to her family." "Combining historical and biographical research with feminist theory, Carrie Hintz considers Osborne's vision of letter writing, her literary achievement, and her literary influences. Osborne has long been overlooked as a writer, making a comprehensive and thorough analysis long overdue. While the nineteenth-century reception of the letters is testament to the enduring public fascination with restrained love narratives, Osborne's eloquent and outspoken articulation of her expectations and desires also makes her letters compelling in our own time."--BOOK JACKET

Dorothy Osborne : letters to Sir William Temple, 1652-54 : observations on love, literature, politics, and religion by Dorothy Osborne( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This title was first published in 2002: As attested to by scholars from Macaulay via Virginia Woolf to more recent critics, the letters of Dorothy Osborne (b. 1627) are not only the most elegant, but are also the most consistently readable in the language. In this revised and updated edition of her letters to the man whom she would propose and later marry, Kenneth Parker presents, along with transcriptions of the letters themselves, their publication history, and an in-depth exploration of the political, social, literary and critical contexts surrounding them. Osborne's letters offer astonishingly sharp-sighted comments on political and cultural events of her time. As told by Parker, the story of their creation, transmission and preservation offers a fascinating insight into the mind of a remarkable woman whose actions provide revealing insights into, and materials for, the study of the politics of culture in one of the key moments of transformation in England."--Provided by publisher
