This edition connects four female writers from two different countries, presenting the English translations of two of the most popular eighteenth-century French novels and a sequel to one of them.


"This volume makes a genuine contribution to the history of women-authored epistolary fiction, of women's role in the Enlightenment, and of Franco-British literary relations in that period. It makes for enjoyable reading and deserves a place in university libraries."

- Perry Gethner, Oklahoma State University in Women in French Studies

"Kaplan's book offers the first re-publications of these particular translations since the eighteenth century… Among the most siginifant contributions made by a volume such as this one is the fact that it will facilitate critical studies of the translated texts."

- Heidi Bostic, Baylor University in New Perspectives on the Eighteenth Century
