Angela Keane addresses the work of five women writers of the 1790s and its problematic relationship with the canon of Romantic literature. Refining arguments that women's writing has been overlooked, Keane examines the more complex underpinnings and exclusionary effects of the English national literary tradition. The book explores the negotiations of literate, middle-class women such as Hannah More, Mary Wollstonecraft, Charlotte Smith, Helen Maria Williams and Ann Radcliffe with emergent ideas of national literary representation. As women were cast into the feminine, maternal role in Romantic national discourse, women like these who defined themselves in other terms found themselves exiled - sometimes literally - from the nation. These wandering women did not rest easily in the family-romance of Romantic nationalism nor could they be reconciled with the models of literary authorship that emerged in the 1790s.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This well-written and informative book is a valuable contribution to the growing number of studies on the book of Revelation.' Evangelical Quarterly
"Keane's book makes a valuable contribution to the fast-growing body of scholarship on the role of women in the formation of British nationalism. By offering us the image of the truly cosmopolitan female political theorist...Keane provides a new perspective on the increasingly important debate concerning the origins and character of the English nation." Nineteenth-Century Contexts
