Description: First published in the turbulent decade following the French Revolution, Memoirs of Emma Courtney is based on Mary Hays's own passionate struggle with romance and Enlightenment philosophy. A feminist and ardent disciple of Mary Wollstonecraft, Hays reveals the lamentable gap between 'what women are' and 'what women ought to be'. This novel is one of the most articulate expressions of the frustrations of a woman living in late eighteenth-century English society. It questions marital arrangements and courtship rituals by depicting a woman who actively pursues the man she loves. The novel suggests the need for improvement in the laws of society which 'have enslaved, enervated, and degraded woman'.
