LOVE LETTERS OF GREAT WOMEN


LOVE LETTERS OF GREAT WOMEN

EDITED BY URSULA DOYLE    Book Number: 83551    Product format: Hardback

Deluded, erotic, fervent, bold, here is the love letter and reminiscences in words and a legacy to cherish. We can delve deep into their hearts in this one treasure of a volume. From the private papers of Anne Boleyn and Emily Dickinson to those of Empress Josephine and Queen Victoria, here is an anthology of some of the most romantic letters in history, full of longing and passion. Some appear astonishingly contemporary in their outlook and others demonstrate how affairs of the heart could irrevocably alter the course of a woman's whole life - as witnessed by Lady Mary Wortley Montagu's anguished cry to her beloved before their elopement in 1712: 'I tremble for what we are doing. Are you sure you will love me forever? I fear, and I hope.' Mrs Beeton, Maria Bicknell (Constable), George Sand and Claire Clairmont who contrived to engineer a meeting between Mary and Percy Shelley, Byron and herself at Lake Geneva when Mary Shelley began Frankenstein, and who in January 1817 gave birth to Byron's daughter Allegra. 160pp.
