Summary
"The growth of female reading audiences from the mid eighteenth century to the early Victorian era represents both a vital episode in women's history and a highly significant factor in shaping the literary production of the period. This book offers for the first time a board overview and detailed analysis of this growing readership, its representation in literature, and the extent of its influence."--Jacket
