Comments:

"Grogan's attentive editing and contextual introduction to what has traditionally been called an 'Anti-Jacobin' novel, forces us to question easy classifications of the 1790s into the dichotomous camps of Jacobin and Anti-Jacobin or feminist and anti-feminist. By providing the contextual evidence and extensive footnotes which document Hamilton's sources, Grogan has convincingly shifted our understanding of the novel from a simple satire of the New Philosophy to a complex questioning of the sexual and social politics of her day. Grogan provides the citations for Hamilton's impressive referencing of literary, philosophical, political and anthropological texts (many of which Grogan then includes in her helpful appendices) and in so doing, this edition of Memoirs gives us a new and highly textured memoir of Hamilton's time." - Katherine Binhammer, University of Alberta
