Memoirs of the life and writings of Mrs. Frances Sheridan, with remarks upon a late life of the right Hon. R.B. Sheridan by Alicia Lefanu( Book )

5 editions published in 1824 in English and German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frances Sheridan (1724-66) won acclaim in her day as both a playwright and novelist. Her most famous work, the sentimental novel Memoirs of Miss Sidney Bidulph (1761), found favour with Samuel Johnson, while her comedy The Discovery (1763) was staged by David Garrick at Drury Lane. Her fame was later eclipsed by that of her son, the playwright and politician Richard Brinsley Sheridan (1751-1816). Written by Alicia Lefanu (1791-c.1844), her granddaughter, this 1824 publication reaffirms the significance of Frances Sheridan's own work as a writer. Recounting her successes and incorporating her own recollections, the book reveals a woman admired both for her literary output and for her character. This work also includes reflections on the life of her son, whose early writing was influenced by that of his mother. Thomas Moore's two-volume biography of Richard Brinsley Sheridan has also been reissued in this series

Le Fanu's gothic : the rhetoric of darkness by Victor Sage( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le Fanu's Gothic explores the relationship between readers and text across the whole span of Sheridan Le Fanu's career, giving due weight to his late, often unprinted, romances, and placing his early work of the 1830s in context. Sage includes chapters on three of Le Fanu's most popular works - Carmilla, The House by the Churchyard, and Uncle Silas - and traces the growth of the author's hybrid forms which mingle satire and comedy with Gothic horror, re-reading his later 'female-centred' romances."--Jacket
