Maria Edgeworth

  • Brian Martin
Part of the Macmillan Anthologies of English Literature book series (AEL)


The chief influence on Maria Edgeworth’s development derived from her father, an eccentric and radical landlord of a large and wealthy Irish estate. He was interested in scientific discovery and education and, while directing Maria’s career and editing most of her writings, he passed on to her many of his enthusiasms.
