Description
In this wide-ranging study of women's letters, covering topics from politics, work, and war, to childhood, love, and sexual passion, a scholar of women's literature explores the depth, breadth, and diversity of women's lives through the ages. Here are such celebrated correspondences as Heloise writing to Abelard of her undying devotion, Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf corresponding about life and writing, and Queen Victoria complaining to Robert Peel about the neglect of Buckingham Palace. But Olga Kenyon also introduces us to Soviet-era Russian poet Marina Tsvetaeva, Victorian servant Hannah Cullwick, and pioneering ethnographer Mary Kingsley.
