Most widely held works by Carol Stewart
The eighteenth-century novel and the secularization of ethics by Carol Stewart( )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Linking the decline in Church authority in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries with the increasing respectability of fiction, Carol Stewart provides a new perspective on the rise of the novel. The resulting readings of novels by authors such as Samuel Richardson, Sarah Fielding, Frances Sheridan, Charlotte Lennox, Tobias Smollett, Laurence Sterne, William Godwin, and Jane Austen shed light on the literary marketplace and the status of writers
The invisible spy by Eliza Fowler Haywood( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The eponymous 'invisible spy' is a striking literary persona, allowing Haywood to lead the reader around London, witnessing and exposing hypocrisy, corruption and the suffering of women. --p. 4 of cover
Eliza Haywood, the fortunate foundlings by Eliza Fowler Haywood( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

9 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 261 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

Invisible spy : by eliza haywood by Carol Stewart( )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interest in the work of Eliza Haywood has increased greatly over the last two decades. Though much scholarship is focused on her 'scandalous' early career, this critical edition of The Invisible Spy (1755) adds to the canon of her later, more sophisticated work
The fortunate foundlings by Eliza Fowler Haywood( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Fortunate Foundlings was one of Eliza Haywood's more successful novels, though it remains one of her lesser known works. It tells the story of a brother and sister left as babies in the care of a gentleman. Like many another eighteenth-century foundling, the siblings leave their guardian behind and make their own way in the world ... Also published here for the first time is her anonymous pamphlet of 1750, A Letter from H-- G--g, Esq., ostensibly a letter from Charles Edward Stuart's aide-de-camp, travelling with him after the prince's expulsion from France. Seemingly a straightforward expression of Jacobite sympathies, it also encodes support for the Patriot cause of the 1740s and '50s."--Back cover
