OCLC: 3347008 Introduction by Henry Morley. Maria Edgeworth (1768 – 1849) was a prolific Anglo-Irish writer of literature for adults and children and a significant figure in the development of the novel. She was quite progressive for a woman in the 19th century, having advanced views on estate management, politics and education. "Edgeworth's writing of Ireland, especially her early Irish tales, offer an important rearticulation of Burkean local attachment and philosophical cosmopolitanism to produce an understanding of the nation as neither tightly bordered (like nations based on historical premises such as blood or inheritance) or not borderless (like those based on rational notions of universal inclusion)." [Esther Wohlgemut]
