Evelina by Fanny Burney( Book )
163 editions published between 1778 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,273 libraries worldwide
"This edition reprints the text of Burney's classic novel together with a broad selection of documents on life in eighteenth-century England that have been carefully chosen to put the work in historical and cultural context."--BOOK JACKET. "Special attention is given to eighteenth-century conduct literature, including Burney's own reactions to her society's codes of behavior for the young lady. In addition, the documents include first-hand descriptions of fashionable English society at the end of the eighteenth century from observers both inside and outside of its folds as well as materials on the often violent underside of the British trade and military expansion that helped construct the fashionable world Burney's heroine enters."--BOOK JACKET. "A general introduction providing historical and cultural background, a chronology of Burney's life and times, introductions to each thematic group of documents, headnotes, extensive annotations, a selected bibliography, and a generous selection of maps and illustrations make this a definitive scholarly edition of this classic work of eighteenth-century literature."--Jacket

Cecilia, or, Memoirs of an heiress by Fanny Burney( Book )
47 editions published between 1786 and 2012 in English and held by 874 libraries worldwide
"Cecilia is an heiress, but will inherit her estate only if her husband consents to take her surname." "Cecilia, or Memoirs of an Heiress (1782) is an unusual and disturbing love-story. In playing on the issue of the heroine's name, the novel illustrates the high cost of a patriarchal system. Burney exhibits her comic and satiric powers in depicting Cecilia's dismaying entry into the gilded fashionable world. Cecilia's experiences also bring her into contact with the poor and the low; running through the social analysis is an almost Dickensian forceful sympathy for those whose place in the structure of things is taken for granted. Controversial in its time, and much admired by writers as diverse as Edmund Burke, Mary Wollstonecraft, and Choderlos de Laclos, Cecilia still retains its freshness." "This edition presents Cecilia as it first appeared in 1782, indicating changes Burney made to later editions. It includes Burney's cancelled 'Introduction', printed (and annotated) here for the first time, as transcribed from the manuscript."--Jacket
The wanderer, or, Female difficulties by Fanny Burney( Book )
56 editions published between 1814 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 652 libraries worldwide
The Wanderer or Female Difficulties is the tale of a penniless emigree from Revolutionary France trying to earn her living in England while guarding her own secrets. Combining the best elements of the Gothic and historical novels, this newly appreciated work is an extraordinary piece of Romantic fiction. Burney's tough comedy offers a satiric view of complacent middle-class insularity that echoes Godwin and Wollstonecraft's attacks on the English social structure. The problems of the new feminism and of the old anti-feminism are explored in the relationship between the heroine and her English patroness and rival, the Wollstonecraftian Elinor Joddrel, and the racism inherent within both the French and British empires is exposed when the emigree disguises herself as a black woman. This edition is fully annotated with appendices on the French Revolution, race relations, amusements, and geography and a previously unpublished manuscript revealing the connection between The Wanderer and Camilla

The witlings ; and, the woman-hater by Fanny Burney( Book )
5 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 337 libraries worldwide
"This Broadview edition pairs two of Frances Burney's linked comedies. They both present the character of Lady Smatter, a "femme savante" whose lineage may be traced back to Moliere; they both centre on the misfortunes of the "elle" figure, the dispossessed heiress and wife who appears frequently in Burney's fiction; and they both criticize a culture of misogyny that breeds suspicion and resentment. The Witlings, lighter and more comic, derives from late seventeenth-century conventions; The Woman-Hater, more melodramatic, both expresses and warns against the excessive sensibility of romanticism. Together, these two plays constitute a miniature history of English drama from the Restoration to the French Revolution and beyond." "This edition contains a valuable selection of appendices, including: Burney's "Epilogue to Gerilda"; letters and diary entries; contemporary writings on comedy; and Burney's cast-list for The Woman-Hater."--Jacket
