Immensely learned, self-educated in an era when formal schooling was denied to women, Mary Wortley Montagu was an admired poet, a consistently scandalous doyenne of eighteenth-century London society, and, in a period when letter-writing had been elevated to an art form, one of the greatest letter writers in the English language. Her epistles, meant for both public and private consumption, are the product of a mind distinguished by its adventurousness, its indifference to convention, and its eagerness not only to acquire knowledge but to convey it with unmitigated style and grace.

Turkish embassy letters by Mary Wortley Montagu( Book )

"The Turkish Embassy Letters chronicle the encounters of a curious mind with numerous aspects of a foreign culture in frank and witty language. Lady Mary Wortley Montagu wrote enthusiastically to her friend, Alexander Pope, about the beauties of Turkish poetry, and set herself the task of learning Turkish grammar so that she could translate poems. To other correspondents, she wrote that she was impressed by the liberties given to women by Turkish cultural institutions, such as the veils that rendered a woman incognita in the street (the better, she thought, to conduct secret love affairs). She was struck by the unpretentious behavior of women in the Turkish baths, which she compared to English coffeehouses because of the freedom of conversation they promoted. Likewise, as a small-pox survivor -- she had succumbed to the disease in 1715, and hid her smallpox scars under makeup, or paint, as it was called -- Lady Mary Wortley Montagu was intrigued by the Turkish method of inoculation against this disease, and later introduced these methods into England with the help of the physician Charles Maitland."--Www.wwnorton.com

Lady Mary Wortley Montagu (1689-1762) is one of the most important women writers between Aphra Behn and Jane Austen, and one of her period's most provocative and entertaining writers of either sex. The narratives in this volume, with the exception of one juvenile piece, have never been printed before. They show the author experimenting in the genres of fiction and autobiography, more influenced by French models than by English, but always working experimentally against the grain of her various traditions. Besides page-turning narrative, these works offer the rare opportunity of a completely fresh taken on literary movements, cross-cultural relations, gender ideologies, and other literary debates of the early eighteenth century. Our existing picture of what was once possible in literature and what was possible for women at this time cannot remain unchanged once these writings appear

From Jacket insert: Lady Mary Wortley Montagu is one of the great eighteenth-century letter-writers. In this, the first new edition for over a century, her letters are edited in a complete text based on her manuscripts (most of which survive), accurately transcribed and fully annotated. The first volume, for the years 1708 to 1720, contains three main groups of letters: those to Edward Wortley Montagu during their long courtship and their early married life; the entirely new series of letters to Philippa Mundy, valuable especially for its oblique light on the courtship; and the brilliant virtuoso letters written when Lady Mary accompanied her husband on his Embassy to Constantinople from 1716 to 1718. The second volume of Lady Mary's Complete Letters includes the brilliant series to her sister Lady Mar, now for the first time edited entirely from the original manuscripts; the long, varied series to Lady Pomfret, from England as well as the Continent; the dutiful letters, many previously unprinted, to her husband about her travels and about her children; and the series to Lady Oxford, annotated from Lady Oxford's own manuscripts. Of the new correspondences, the most significant are her letters to Francesco Algarotti, which reveal new aspects of her personality and of her art as a letter-writer, and me ample series (in French) to Madame Chiara Bragadin Michiel, a Venetian lady, which displays her graciousness sparked with flashes of wit. The final volume of Lady Mary's Complete Letters contains two major correspondences: the leisurely and diversified series to her daughter Lady Bute, in which she describes her life in Venice, Brescia, and the Italian lake country, and discusses her reading and philosophical economist, and his wife. Among the entirely new correspondences, the volumes add one with James Stuart Mackenzie, Lord Bute's brother, and the conclusions of those with Francesco Algarotti and Chiara (Bragadin) Michiel. In addition it contains summaries of various letters no longer extant; these come form Lady Mary's commonplace book, now in Australia. A detailed index to all three volumes completes the edition
