    About "Catharine Maria Sedgwick"

      • Catharine Maria Sedgwick

        Catharine Maria Sedgwick was born December 28, 1789 in Stockbridge, Massachusetts As a young woman, Sedgwick took charge of a school in Lenox She converted from Calvinism to Unitarianism, which led her to write a pamphlet denouncing religious intolerance This further inspired her to write her first novel, A New England Tale.With her work much in demand, from the 1820s to the 1850s, Sedgwick made a good living writing short stories for a variety of periodicals She died in 1867, and by the end of the 19th century, she had been relegated to near obscurity There was a rise of male critics who deprecated women s writing as they worked to create an American literature.Interest in Sedgwick s works and an appreciation of her contribution to American literature has been stimulated by the late 20th century s feminist movement Beginning in the 1960s, feminist scholars began to re evaluate women s contributions to literature and other arts, and created new frames of reference for considering their work In addition, the advent of low cost electronic reproductions, which became available at the end of the 20th century, made Sedgwick and other nineteenth century authors work accessible for study and pleasure.

    1. I loved this book (and Isabella Linwood) so much I wanted to name my first born daughter Isabella. Then that bitch Bella Swan came along and ruined everything.Seriously though, this is a fantastic novel with great exploration of the "ideal woman" of the time, and the changing "ideal." I wrote a huge research paper on it, but I won't bore you all.Worth the read, and I still like the name Isabella.
