Women Writers : Their Works and Ways (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Women Writers: Their Works and Ways Bronte, with Fredrika Bremer, with Letitia Landon, with Felicia Hemans, and many others. Some, indeed, like Fanny Burney and Lady Morgan, seem to write from pure excess Of vitality, from real gaiety of heart; we are amused and interested, but we are not touched to finer issues, not roused and stimulated as we are by Elisabeth Barrett Browning or by George Eliot. Others, like Harriet Martineau and Maria Edgeworth, have a distinct practical aim in View. They wish to bring, out some useful lesson, to point a moral as well 'as adorn a tale.
