Excerpt from Women-Writers of the Nineteenth Century

This collection of studies does not aim at giving an ex haustive account of the contribution made by women to Nineteenth Century literature. Neither does it profess to be in any sense a feminist treatise. The writers selected were in all cases remarkable women; but they were something more -remarkable human beings. I have endeavoured throughout to concentrate, not merely on questions of sex, but on the complete humanity of each woman. So far as possible all pre conceived theories of the literary woman have been deliberately excluded. There is no initial attempt to determine what the woman of letters should be like. After looking carefully at these particular women, we may see What she has sometimes been like; and we may also discern certain characteristics common to different women of literary instinct. That is all the theory which this book professes to give. For its aim has not been the evolution of a principle. It has attempted something more elusive, and to many minds far more satis fying - to look at individual writers, as it were face to face, with a quickened sense of kinship and reverence.
