Product DescriptionThis meticulously edited collection contains the complete novels of the great Frances Burney, as well as her plays, journals, diaries and essays, complemented with her biography. Burney's novels explore the lives of English aristocrats, and satirize their social pretensions and personal foibles, with an eye to larger questions such as the politics of female identity. She has gained critical respect in her own right, but she also foreshadowed such novelists of manners with a satirical bent as Jane Austen and Thackeray.
Journals & Diaries:
The Diary and Letters of Madame D'Arblay
Brief Reflections Relative to the French Emigrant Clergy
Fanny Burney by Austin Dobson
