Fanny Burney and Adèle, Comtesse de Boigne, were two of the most remarkable female writers of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries: one a famous novelist, the other an aristocrat from one of France’s most ancient families. This was the tumultuous era which saw the French Revolution, the Napoleonic years and the July 1830 Revolution in France; and in England the ‘madness’ of George III and the extravagant Regency period. Both women used memoirs and diaries to document their lives in the upper echelons of society in London and Paris, commenting with scintillating wit and waspish observation on their encounters with many of the great figures of the day, such as Napoleon, Wellington, Talleyrand, Castlereagh, Chateaubriand, Dr Johnson, David Garrick, Madame de Stael and both the French and British Royal families. Through the observations of these immensely well-connected and brilliant writers, Brian Unwin provides an extraordinarily original insight into the principal events and characters of one of the most seminal and turbulent periods of modern European history.

The Authors in Context series, a subseries of the Oxford World's Classics series, examines the work of major authors in relation to their own times and to the present day. Combining history with lively literary discussion, each volume provides comprehensive insight into texts in their context. Charles Dickens was both a representative Victorian and an artist who is quintessentially a "Post-Romantic." He was the most popular author of his age and the one who most vividly reflected the contradictory impulses of Victorian society, its energy and invention as much as its social and political anomalies. This book explores Dickens's interest in the urban phenomenon, which so marks nineteenth-century culture, and it looks at the vital interconnection between his life and his art. Like his character, David Copperfield, Dickens lived his life and pursued his career "thoroughly in earnest," but he was also a great comic writer whose work resonates well beyond his own age and continues to be recontextualized on the stage, on film, and on television.
