about

This book recovers the importance of a major figure in eighteenth-century British fiction: the Heroine of Disinterest. Cope shows how the disinterested heroine was no stereotype but a crucial figure in modernizing identity, bringing to life the ideal of character as the product of experience and reflection rather than inheritance and lineage.
