Brings together British women writers who opposed what they figured as the "poison" of revolutionary thought, and who used the novel form in their search for a "vehicle" to carry a counterrevolutionary "antidote". Reading Jane West, Hannah More, Elizabeth Hamilton, Mary Brunton, Laetitia Matilda Hawkins, and Jane Porter in relation to each other and to their antirevolutionary contemporaries, this study shows that they developed an alternative feminine (but not feminist) discourse within the broader context of conservative print culture.
