From Our Editors

One of early America’s most successful women writers, Susanna Rowson first published Charlotte Temple in 1794. It was the biggest best-seller in American literary history until Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin, more than 100 years later. Charlotte Temple is the tale of a young English girl who elopes to America where she is pitilessly abandoned. Repeatedly dramatized throughout the 19th century, the work’s theatrical offspring inspired D. W. Griffith’s masterpiece, Way Down East. Rowson’s riveting sequel, Lucy Temple tells the tale of Charlotte’s orphaned daughter. Penguin Classics presents the two stories here in one stunning volume.
