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 )

24 editions published between 1824 and 2013 in English and held by 156 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

Strathallan (1816) by Alicia Lefanu( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Strathallan (1816) is at once a conventional and subversive romance. Alicia LeFanu is informed by the work of earlier eighteenth-century society satirists such as Frances Brooke and Frances Burney, yet at the same time her interests coincide with those of her more immediate contemporaries Scott and Austen. The novel addresses several themes of adultery, obsession and inheritance. It follows the fortunes of Matilda Melbourne who displays virtue, delicacy, and an unwavering commitment to the sometimes ruthless demands of parental authority." "LeFanu's implicit referencing of Frances Sheridan's examination of similar obligations in Memoirs of Miss Sidney Bidulph (1761) places the novel in the context of serious ongoing debates on female education and marriage. Matilda's friend and confidant, Arbella Ferrars, subverts the expectations of such an idealized femininity and is the principle means through which the sardonic and often wickedly wry observations on provincial pretensions are expressed. For Arbella's disruptive brand of coquetry. LeFanu is indebted to Frances Brooke's History of Lady Julia Mandeville and History of Emily Montegue. Notwithstanding the particular merits of this work, its intertextual relation to both earlier fictions and prevalent trends presents an intriguing basis upon which to examine the extent of the women writer's strategic engagement with the literary market."--Jacket
