Women of Letters, Manuscript Circulation and Print Afterlives in the Eighteenth Century: Elizabeth Rowe, Catharine Cockburn and Elizabeth Carter tells the stories of these women's writing lives: the social and literary contexts which shaped their allegiance to manuscript circulation; the histories of their successful as well as failed forays into print; and their agency and/or diffidence in regards to their public careers. At the same time, the work also broaches larger thematic issues: the degree and significance of women's involvement in the English republic of letters-particularly in relation to their relevance and engagement in contemporary debates within Christianity; the evidence for a more robust climate of manuscript circulation in the long eighteenth century; and reception history-specifically the notion of print afterlives and the critical tradition.
