The history of Miss Betsy Thoughtless by Eliza Fowler Haywood( Book )

111 editions published between 1751 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A lively, pretty young orphan with a large fortune, Miss Betsy Thoughtless is courted by several eligible suitors. Enjoying their adoration, she dallies with their affections and postpones marriage. Her flirtatiousness, however, alienates the right man, and scares her guardian into marrying her off to a brutish husband. This is one of the first novels (1751) to depict a heroine questioning the sexual double standard and institution of marriage."--Publisher's description

The history of Jemmy and Jenny Jessamy by Eliza Fowler Haywood( Book )

52 editions published between 1753 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The History of Jemmy and Jenny Jessamy, originally published as three volumes in 1753, is the last work by the prolific English novelist Eliza Haywood. Out of print since the early nineteenth century and never available in an edited and fully-annotated modern edition such as this, Haywood's novel is an important early example of the sentimental novel of domestic manners. In its depiction of marriage and courtship among the leisure class of the mid-eighteenth century, Haywood's novel is remarkable for its unsentimental realism. Book jacket."--Jacket

The rash resolve ; and, Life's progress by Eliza Fowler Haywood( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eliza Haywood was one of the most popular and versatile writers of the eighteenth century. The two novellas in this edition - The Rash Resolve (1724) and Life's Progress (1748) - show her developing and adapting her ideas on the subject of passion and romance. Though superficially presented as cautionary tales, Haywood introduces a feminist slant; gender roles are reconstructed, female sexuality is sympathetically depicted and marriage and domesticity are resisted. Not only are these works important for their use of female agency, but they also provide insights into Haywood's politics. The Rash Resolve implicitly attacks the dominance of the ruling Whigs, and Life's Progress implies support for the Jacobite cause. This is the first critical edition of both these works."--Publisher's website
