Description: For half a century Lydia Maria Child was a household name in the United States. Hardly a sphere of nineteenth-century life can be found in which Lydia Maria Child did not figure prominently as a pathbreaker. Although best known today for having edited Harriet A. Jacobs's Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, Child pioneered almost every department of nineteenth-century American letters -- the historical novel, the short story, children's literature, the domestic advice book, women's history, antislavery fiction, journalism, and the literature of aging. Offering a panoramic view of a nation and culture in flux, this innovative cultural biography recreates the world as well as the life of a major nineteenth-century figure whose career as a writer and social reformer encompassed issues central to American history. Originally published by Duke University Press in 1994, this biography will be of interest to students and scholars of American studies, women's studies, African-American studies, and nineteenth-century literature.
