Abstract

This book is the first full-length biography of the Evangelical philanthropist, Hannah More (1745-1833), for fifty years, and the first to make use of her unpublished correspondence. As playwright, bluestocking, Evangelical reformer, political writer, and novelist, More was one of the most influential women of her day. Her career adds weight to the argument that women were increasingly active outside the private sphere of the home.
