9780199554720: A Simple Story (Oxford World's Classics)

When Miss Milner announces her passion for her guardian, a Catholic priest, she breaks through the double barrier of his religious vocation and 18th-century British society's standards of proper womanly behavior. Like other women writers of her time, Elizabeth Inchbald concentrates on the question of a woman's "proper education," and her sureness of touch and subtlety of characterization prefigure Jane Austen's work.

About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

About the Author:

The late J.M.S. Tompkins edited the OEN text from which edition derives Jane Spencer is a lecturer in English at the University of Edinburgh. Her other publications include The Rise of the Woman Novelist (Blackwell, 1986). Her introduction to A Simple Story reconsiders Elizabeth Inchbald in the light of current feminist thinking.

Review:

"well worth reading, standing as it does at a watershed of the English novel"

--University of Edinburgh Journal

"A charming marginally pre-Austen tale"

--Shirley de Kock, Southern Africa Cape Times

"Excellent choice of reprint"

--I. A. Bell, Aberystwyth

"Excellent text, well edited."

--Henry Merritt, C.C.A.T.

"this 1792 novel deserves its place for its charm, its readability and as an early expression of the need for women to have a reasonable education"

--David Holloway, Sunday Telegraph 20/07/1994
