Dr. Johnson and Fanny Burney (Dodo Press) by Frances Burney

Book Description

Frances Burney (1752-1840), also known as Fanny Burney and after marriage as Madame D'Arblay, was a novelist, diarist, and playwright. She was self-educated, and began writing what she called her "scribblings" at the age of ten. She married in 1793 at forty-two, to a French exile, General Alexandre D'Arblay. Their only son, Alexander, was born in 1794. After a lengthy writing career, and travels that took her to France for over ten years, she settled in Bath, England. Throughout her career as a writer, her wit and talent for satirical caricatures were widely acknowledged. In total, she wrote four novels, eight plays, one biography, and twenty volumes of journals and letters. Her works include: The History of Caroline Evelyn (1767), Evelina; or, The History of a Young Lady's Entrance into the World (1778), Cecilia; or, Memoirs of an Heiress (1782), Camilla; or, A Picture of Youth (1796) and The Wanderer; or, Female Difficulties (1814).

Books By Author Frances Burney

Evelina by Frances Burney Evelina, Paperback (May 2012)

Beautiful young Evelina falls victim to the rakish advances of Sir Clement Willoughby on her entrance to the world of fashionable London. Colliding with the manners and customs of a society she doesn't understand, she finds herself without hope that she should ever deserve the attention of the man she loves.

Journals and Letters by Frances Burney Journals and Letters, Paperback (May 2001)

From her youth in London high society to a period in the court of Queen Charlotte and her years interned in France with her husband Alexandre d'Arblay during the Napoleonic Wars, she captures the changing times around her. She includes portraits such as the mad' King George, Samuel Johnson, Sir Joshua Reynolds, David Garrick, and more.

Witlings and the Woman-Hater by Frances Burney Witlings and the Woman-Hater, Paperback (January 1999)

"This edition effectively contextualises The Witlings and The Woman-Hater within eighteenth-century theatrical culture and Burney's own preoccupations, literary and personal." -- Jacqueline Pearson, University of Manchester
