Summary
"After the death of Margaret Oliphant - the prolific nineteenth-century novelist, biographer, essayist, reviewer, and prominent voice on the "woman question" - two well-intending relatives took the autobiographical manuscripts she composed over a thirty-year period, and recomposed them to suit the model of a conventional memoir. In the process, they suppressed more than a quarter of the material. Based on the original manuscripts, the Broadview edition now makes available the missing text in its original order, and the restored Autobiography of Margaret Oliphant portrays a woman of scathing irony, anger and grief."--BOOK JACKET
