The writers represented here range from ladies to servants, from spinsters to courtesans, from actresses to poets, from wronged wives to wives of men engaged in British colonization. A comprehensive introduction by the editors explores the material conditions of womens lives in Restoration and eighteenth-century Britain and critically examines the genre of autobiography.

Each selection is preceded by an explanatory headnote that places the document in its historical, cultural, and social contexts.
