Recent Studies and Editions of 18th-Century
Women Writers, Readers, and Publishers

First published July 16, 1999
Revised and updated November 1999 and January 10, 2000

This is a selective bibliography focusing on studies related to literature written, published, and read by women. Most of the entries first appeared in the newsletter of the East-Central American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, The East-Central Intelligencer, n.s. 13, no. 1 (January 1999), 45-85; others since discovered (many brought to my attention by James E. Tierney) appear in a supplement in the September 1999 issue of that newsletter. With its focus on literature, it neglects many interesting and important studies related to women as physical, social, and spiritual beings. I tried to include studies often relying on unpublished writings, as Betty Rizzo's Companions Without Vows (1994), but had to exclude even the ground-breaking primary-research studies as not fitting the scope like The Secret Malady, edited by Linda E. Merians (1996). The scope is also limited to 1660-1800; thus, I've excluded most Austen studies (though not all) and much on Commonwealth writings and also by writers publishing after 1800--such as Maria Edgeworth and Lady Morgan. (The increased interest in early 19C women writers has been a principal force for expanding 18C studies to 1815 and other dates.) And, with a few exceptions dated 1986-1987, the survey only reaches back ten years to 1988 (this excludes much that's not been digested as yet, as the 12-vol. Journals and Letters of Fanny Burney [Oxford, 1972-1984]). It's astonishing how much has been written the past ten years on women writers of our period--on women's literature in English alone! One hopes that contributors to this campaign take a collective pride and satisfaction in the triumph. It is hard to imagine a specialist being able to read all that's been published on just Aphra Behn and other Restoration women writers. Nonetheless, I apologize for overlooking good studies within my scope. The coverage is, due to my own ignorance, better for English and American than for other nationalities. Some excluded scholarship on 18th-century women appeared in my Bibliographic Tools checklist, begun in the September 1998 ECI and since augmented and posted on the WWW in July 1999 by Kevin Berland. Other items related to women will appear in future installments of this bibliographic survey, as on the topics music, reading, and journalism. Please call my attention to scholarship relevant to future bibliographies. I am fluent in nothing but English and have the chance to consult but half of our field's major journals. I hope that this is a true enough survey to allow some sense of what's been done and not done, who the senior researchers and editors are, and which journals and presses are eager to publish editions and studies of women writers (Broadview, Penguin, Oxford U. Press, and Kentucky have led the way, followed by Cambridge U. Press, Georgia, and Delaware).

I have abbreviated Oxford U. Press and Cambridge U. Press as "OUP" and "CUP" and listed them with only one of their principal locations (and OUP with only Clarendon in Oxford and OUP in NY). With apologies to Julien Yoseloff and the important distributing organization for many presses, "Cranbury, NJ, and London: Associated U. Presses" has regularly been cut from entries for books published by associated presses at Bucknell, Delaware, and Fairleigh Dickinson. Familiar journals with lengthy titles have been abbreviated (Eighteenth-Century Fiction as ECF, Eighteenth-Century Life as ECL, Eighteenth-Century Studies as ECS, The Eighteenth Century: Theory and Interpretation as ECent, English Literary History as ELH, Restoration and 18th Century Research as RECTR, Studies in Eighteenth-Century Culture as SECC, Studies in English Literature as SEL, Studies on Voltaire and the Eighteenth Century as SVEC). Dictionary of Literary Biography (DLB) volumes that contain more than one or two relevant entries are listed under their editors, such as Backscheider, Elliott, Hester, Kelly, Mudge, Serafin, Siebert, and Sitter for English and Hardin for German authors; the series contains many duplicate articles on the same authors, though written by different scholars (all volumes have bibliographies of primary works and then of secondary and also portraits and facsimiles). Note that Martin Battestin's two DLB volumes on the English novelists are not listed as dated 1985. -- James E. May, 14 July 1999]
