"At last, a modern edition of Williams's absorbing and familiar Letters Written in France. Fraistat and Lanser edit with tact and impeccable scholarship. Their introduction to the French Revolution is a gem in itself, an international `thriller' well designed for today's reader." - Nanora Sweet, University of Missouri, St. Louis "Williams's eloquent and dramatic eye-witness account of the French Revolution, Letters Written in France, is a work central to the study of Romanticism, history, and women's literature. Expertly edited, this splendid edition contains a brilliant, informative introduction that situates Williams in the landscape of revolutionary, literary, and women's history, offers very helpful scholarly annotations, and is packed with contextual materials. This is another Broadview gem." - Harriet Kramer Linkin, New Mexico State University
