The Modern Griselda
    (Review / The Modern Griselda: a Tale, by Maria Edgeworth)
  New Annual Register / JAS, 1804
  vol. 25 (1804): 355.
'The Modern Griselda: a Tale, by Miss Edgeworth.' - A tale designed to prove how easily it is possible for a woman who possesses the entire affections of her husband, to lose them by degrees in consequence of her own abuse of the power she has acquired; and how difficult it is to recover what she has thus absurdly thrown away. Miss Edgeworth writes with her usual attention to real life.' [excerpt from review of many works]
