9780810122291: The Sylph (European Classics)

This ranging epistolary novel follows Julia Grenville, a Welsh beauty who knows little of the world until her marriage to the older Lord Stanley. Through Julia’s letters to her sister, readers learn more of Julia’s new life in London her unfaithful husband, her miscarriage, her disillusionment with the city and its fashions. Other letters reveal that Julia has a longtime admirer, Harry Woodley, from her former life, as well as a mysterious guardian angel: her Sylph. This character guides Julia away from the depravities of her life in London, including her gambling problem. The Sylph is also another sympathetic ear to Julia’s increasing marital dissatisfaction and growing affinity for another man, the Baron Ton-hausen. As Julia nearly falls prey to the overzealous admirations of one of her husband’s associates, her husband is consumed by gambling debts to that same associate. She is shocked to discover the depths of her husband’s ruin and plans to flee to Wales before she too can be claimed in payment. Her disgraced husband takes the ultimate way out and Julia goes home to her father and sister in Wales. Her Sylph is not far behind, however, and soon reveals himself to Julia to be more than she could have ever imagined.

About the Author:

Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire (b. 1757) first published The Sylph anonymously in 1779. She was a close friend of Marie Antoinette and an ancestor of Diana Spencer.

 

Jonathan David Gross is a professor and the director of the DePaul University Humanities Center. He is the author of Byron: The Erotic Liberal, and editor of Byron’s Corbeau Blanc”: The Life and Letters of Lady MelbourneEmma, or the Unfortunate Attachment, and Thomas Jefferson's Scrapbooks: Poems of Family, Nation, and Romantic Love. 

Review:

"This scholarly edition of The Sylph provides fresh insights into the lives of aristocratic women in the 1770s. The novel by one of the most fashionable women of her age is both a window on upper-class social mores and a roman à clef drawing on the Duchess's own gambling addiction and unconventional domestic arrangements."  --Janet Todd, Herbert J.C. Grierson Professor of English Literature, University of Aberdeen



"Once praised as ingenious and condemned as obscene, The Sylph is, in fact, a fascinating insider's view of the life of the British ruling class, penned by one of the most gifted and troubled women of the eighteenth century."  --Paula R. Feldman, C. Wallace Martin Professor of English, University of South Carolina
