The unhappy alliance of Ann Yearsley and Hannah More: a parable for feminism. Pastoral and georgic transformations. Disputing the rule of the fathers. Versifying the Scriptures. That ravishing supplement -- The resignation of Mary Collier: some problems in feminist literary history. Reading The Woman's Labour. Patronage and conservatism -- A English Sappho brilliant, young and dead? Mary Leapor laughs at the fathers. The "sapphic" muse. Patronage and patronizing relations. Reading Crumble-Hall -- The complex contradictions of Ann Yearsley: working-class writer, bourgeois subject: The "savage" muse. The pleasures of the text -- with a vengeance. Domesticating the political and the politics of domesticity -- Laboring in pastures new: the two Elizabeths: Elizabeth Hands on the pastoral. Elizabeth Bentley, the "Norwich maiden". -- Other others: the marginality of cultural difference: Janet Little breaks into Scots. Slavery and sensibility: Phillis Wheatley within the fracture -- The 1790s and after: revolutions that as yet have no model: "Revolutionary women" in Britain as impure contradiction. Mary Wollstonecraft and Hannah More reconsidered. Feminist and democratic ideology at the limit. The Turkish prejudice. A shifting limit: Wollstonecraft's The Wrongs of Woman: Or, Maria. A Fragment.
