This is the first volume of Lady Jane Wilde's letters to be published. Its contents help to dispel some of the malicious rumors about the Wildes' repeated in most biographies. Lady Jane Wilde was a poet, essayist, intellectual, and fighter for Ireland and women's rights in the second half of the nineteenth century. She wrote many letters from her home in Dublin and later from London connecting her to people with whom she felt empathy, some of whom she rarely saw. One such friend was the Swedish feminist and author, Lotten von Kraemer, who lived in Uppsala, a difficult journey from Dublin. Lotten saved Jane's letters - as did a number of her correspondents - and the collection is now housed in the National Library of Sweden in Stockholm. Jane's bond with Lotten was strengthened through her letters in which she expressed her affection and respect for Lotten and Sweden and wrote of shared interests - writing, women's education and rights, and books. Jane also revealed much of herself in her letters, including her ambition to be a reputable writer as well as a caring wife and mother.
