Based on a substantial listing of novels, authors and publication details, covering 1696 to 1796, Living by the Pen traces the pattern of growth of women's fiction and offers a persuasive explanation for the remarkable rise of women writers during this period. The book breaks new ground by exploring this aspect of women's writing in relation to the world of publishing. The coverage is broad, taking into account: the occupation structure for women the writers' relationship with their publishers methods and levels of payment the readership access to women's fiction though libraries and magazines writers' use of other genres to support their literary careers. It also includes: a 50 page appendix cataloguing works by women writers throughout the 18th century, giving brief plot summaries and dates of publication.
