Description - Journals and Letters by Peter Sabor
Written over a 70-year period from 1768 to 1839, Burney's letters and journals are distinguished by their remarkable range and variety. They record Burney's unhappy experience of English court life and later, in France, the final stages of the Napoleonic wars. From the self-centred and irreverant writings of the precocious young girl to the more sober reflections of the mature woman, this selection demonstrates Burney's ability to bring the world around her to life.
