A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Delarivier Manley is increasingly coming to the fore as a prominent figure in early eighteenth-century fiction, and The Adventures of Rivella in particular has been attracting attention not only as an important example of amatory fiction, but also as an early autobiographical novel. At one level, Sir Charles Lovemore tells the story of Rivella s life to his friend, the Chevalier d Aumont; at another, Manley uses the male persona to portray herself as an unrivalled literary goddess of love, repudiating conventional equations of woman, writer and whore, and refusing to confuse chastity with moral integrity.

Synopsis :

Delarivier Manley is increasingly coming to the fore as a prominent figure in early eighteenth-century fiction, and The Adventures of Rivella in particular has been attracting attention not only as an important example of amatory fiction, but also as an early autobiographical novel. At one level, Sir Charles Lovemore tells the story of Rivella's life to his friend, the Chevalier d'Aumont; at another, Manley uses the male persona to portray herself as an unrivalled literary goddess of love, repudiating conventional equations of woman, writer and whore, and refusing to confuse chastity with moral integrity.

Critique:

"This edition makes this overlooked text widely available; judicious editorial apparatus allows the reader to understand the book's fascinating contexts." -- Bruce Stovel, University of Alberta
