About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1952, this biography collects both the published and unpublished correspondence of Hannah More, as well as the plethora of references made to her in contemporary letters and memoirs, in order to create a portrait of a deeply religious and philanthropic playwright and educator who challenged the mores of her society. Jones charts the continuity and change of More's interests through her life, and in doing so reveals a cross-section of English religious and social life in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the role and place of women in this period of great cultural development and change.
