Get A Secret Sisterhood: The Hidden Friendships of Austen, PDF

By Emily Midorikawa,Emma Claire Sweeney,Margaret Atwood

A mystery Sisterhood uncovers the hidden literary friendships of the world’s most dear woman authors.

Drawing on letters and diaries, a few of that have by no means been released earlier than, this e-book will display Jane Austen’s bond with a relatives servant, the novice playwright Anne Sharp; how Charlotte Brontë used to be encouraged by means of the bold feminist Mary Taylor; the transatlantic dating among George Eliot and the author
of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Harriet Beecher Stowe; and the underlying erotic cost that lit the friendship of Virginia Woolf and Katherine Mansfield – a couple too usually brushed aside as sour foes.

of their first e-book jointly, Midorikawa and Sweeney resurrect those literary collaborations, that have been occasionally illicit, scandalous and unstable; occasionally supportive, radical or inspiring; yet continuously, formerly, tantalisingly consigned to the shadows.
