First published in 1796, Camilla deals with the matrimonial concerns of a group of young people-Camilla Tyrold and her sisters, the daughters of a country parson, and their cousin Indiana Lynmere-and, in particular, with the love affair between Camilla herself and her eligible suitor, EdgarMandlebert. The path of true love, however, is strewn with intrigue, contretemps and misunderstanding.An enormously popular eighteenth-century novel, Camilla is touched at many points by the advancing spirit of romanticism. As in Evelina, Fanny Burney weaves into her novel strands of light and dark, comic episodes and gothic shudders, and creates a pattern of social and moral dilemmas whichemphasize and illuminate the gap between generations.
Edward A. Bloom is Deceased, formerly Professor of English, Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favourites! The most beautifully written and funniest book I've read in ages! Frances Burney is my new favourite author and this edition has all the explanatory notes one could wish to clarify any historical intricacies not familiar to modern readers. A long, but much worthwhile book.
