Eliza Haywood (1693-1756), was one of the first women in England to earn a living writing fiction. Her early tales of amorous intrigue were popular and controversial. Originally published in 1723, these two narratives represent Haywood's contribution to the development of the novel as a genre.

From Our Editors

These narratives, originally published in 1723, were popular but very controversial. The Pope and Jonathan Swift actually denounced author Eliza Haywood for her contribution to cultural degeneracy. In the first work, we meet an anti-heroine who rejects her role as a married woman. The second one presents a model of virtue who eventually falls into an illicit affair. The Injur’d Husband and Lasselia show how the author helped develop the novel form.
