Language, custom, and nation in the 1790s : Locke, Tooke, Wordsworth, Edgeworth by Susan Manly( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 185 libraries worldwide
"Language, Custom and Nation in the 1790s shows for the first time how the radical 'Jacobin' poets, and their ideas of a 'revolutionary' poetry, were impelled - even 'invented' - by the seventeenth-century English philosopher John Locke. For too long the revolutionary Romanticism and poetic experiments of the 1790s have been understood as responses to the American and French revolutions or attributed to the intellectual influence of Rousseau." "Susan Manly counters these assumptions, by tracing threads of influence from Locke's ideas of 'arbitrary' language and tyranny, through Tooke's attacks on terms such as 'majesty' and 'law', to the supposedly 'real language' of Wordsworthian Romanticism. She breaks new ground in establishing Maria Edgeworth's place in Locke's anti-authoritarian tradition, contending that Edgeworth's work, produced in the shadow of the United Irishmen uprising, revives the politicisation of the idea of common language displaced in Wordsworth's neutralizing of Locke's radical impulse in the preface to Lyrical Ballads. Manly's original and engaging book will appeal to scholars of 1790s radicalism, eighteenth-century linguistic theory, women's writing and the relations between Britain and Ireland."--BOOK JACKET

Helen by Maria Edgeworth( Book )
5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 38 libraries worldwide
At its core, Helen is a novel about lying--not lies told in malice, but the self-destructive lies one tells to those one loves. The story of orphan Helen Stanley and her friend Lady Cecilia Clarendon, and the crumbling of Lady Cecilia's marriage, this compelling tale foreshadows later nineteenth-century novels of marital unrest and disaster

Practical education by Maria Edgeworth( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
The scientist Richard Lovell Edgeworth (1744-1817), educated at Trinity College, Dublin, and Oxford, was a Member of the Lunar Society of Birmingham, where he exchanged ideas with other scientists, including James Watt, and was known for his significant mechanical inventions. However, Edgeworth's real interest was education: in this 1788 two-volume work, written with his daughter, the poet Maria Edgeworth (1768-1849), he draws on his own experience of raising twenty children (by his four wives), from which the work derives its authority
