Book Description:

“Augusta Webster’s powerful and witty, disarmingly casual essays incisively explore such topics as the creation of selfhood, the social constraints that mar women’s happiness, and the struggle for women’s rights. Reintroducing Webster’s writings after a century of neglect, Christine Sutphin provides generous, well-chosen selections of both poetry and prose as well as an informative introduction and useful supplementary materials. Anyone interested in Victorian poetry, women’s writing, or nineteenth-century feminism will appreciate this extremely interesting volume by an important Victorian writer.” ― Dorothy Mermin, Cornell University
