Inhaltsangabe: Maria Edgeworth takes on issues of gender and race in her early editions of "Belinda", and although later editions tone down some controversial material to appease audiences, the alterations were most likely made by Edgeworth's father. Edgeworth's story centers around Belinda, a young woman who is navigating the complicated path of courtship and the limitations of domesticity. When Belinda is sent to live with the fashionable Lady Delacour, in hopes that she will find a wealthy and respected husband, she is quickly exposed to differing perspectives on marriage and the social obligations of women. The influence of Lady Delacour, and later Lady Anne Percival, motivate Belinda toward an independence and spirit of empowerment reminiscent of Mary Wollstonecraft. Edgeworth's popularity diminished somewhat after the first two decades of the 19th Century, however, her works opened doors for later writers like Sir Walter Scott and William Makepeace Thackeray, and expanded the potential for the "female" novel.
From the Publisher: Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
