Clean, tight, unmarked; top corner turned on several pages; pen underlining on several pages throughout; otherwise minimal wear; Both a novel of sensibility with a sentimental love story and a highly politicized depiction of life in the 18th century Quebec. It is also a feminist text with Brooke participating in a critique of rituals of courtship, "petticoat politics" and fashionable "propriety". This critical edition provides a new bibliography, excerpts from Brooke's other works, a full biography of Brooke and a selection of critical commentary spanning early responses to the novel to contemporary readings.
