Matched Pairs: Gender and Intertextual Dialogue in Eighteenth-Century Fiction

Hardback
By pairing individual novels by women with those by men, the author is able to explore multiple dimensions and implications of intertextuality across gender lines during the formative century of novel-writing in England. Dealing with pairs of novels by Eliza Haywood and Daniel Defoe, Henry and Sarah Fielding, Samuel Richardson and Charlotte Lenox, Tobias Smollett and Frances Burney, and Ann Radcliffe and Matthew G. Lewis allows Bartolomeo to describe, analyze, and elevate early women novelists' achievements.
