Besides presenting a vivid picture of manners in a picturesque age, they contain a unique series of impressions from foreign courts seldom visited and nowhere else so intimately described. Lady Mary was the wife of a popular ambassador and, wielding the charm of a strong personality, was enabled to see and hear many things of which the ordinary traveler, or resident abroad, knew-and knows-little or nothing. Originally written, for the most part, to her sisters, her daughter, or to very intimate friends, her Letters are unusually detailed and frank. She was a keen observer, not superior to the love of gossip with a quick eye for the telling features of a story or situation, and an easy, effective style.For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

Selected Letters Selected Letters - used book

ISBN: 9780140434903

ID: 425537

Lady Mary Wortley Montagu introduced smallpox inoculation to England, was attacked in satires by her literary rival, Alexander Pope, and ran off to Venice with a young Italian lover. Throughout her life she recorded almost every aspect of her intriguing existence in letters about love, politics, science, gossip, literature, and more, displaying different aspects of her personality to her many correspondents. Although they were designed for publication, her Embassy Letters from Constantinople, where her husband was ambassador, are vividly personal. Equally revealing are several letters which have never before appeared in print, including one full of chamber-pot humor, and another that describes men as "vile Inconstant Toads". With examples from every type of correspondence, Isobel Grundy presents a superb selection of direct and vigorous letters that convey Lady Montagu's passion, wit, and originality.
