A work by turns hilarious and grim, Evelina tells the story of a young woman’s education in the ways of the world, vividly rendering life in eighteenth-century England. Raised by a pastor after her mother died and her father abandoned her, Evelina leaves the seclusion of the country for her first season out, encounters all manner of people–from prospective husbands to rakes to vulgar relatives–and endures all manner of trials before she achieves her final triumph. “Before Evelina,” W. D. Howells proclaimed, “the heart of girlhood had never been so fully opened in literature.” Samuel Johnson called Burney “a real wonder” and Thomas Babington Macaulay wrote, “We owe to [Burney], not only Evelina, Cecilia, and Camilla, but also Mansfield Park and The Absentee.”
A book of love, sex, greed and murder. What makes a woman who wouldn't kill a bug breakdown and kill a man? Over the years Evelina has pissed people off just trying to survive. Two have come back to haunt her life and destroy her loved ones and her future. Her plan is to survive. Just as she is getting back on her feet and about to marry husband number six, along comes hurricane Katrina.
One of Mary E. Wilkins Freeman's most popular short stories, "Evelina's Garden" tells the tale of two cousins -- one an elderly recluse, and one a beautiful young woman -- who are drawn together by a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind garden. Young Evelina is prepared to devote her life to caring for the extraordinary oasis, but when romance intervenes, everything begins to fall apart.

"The study addresses the following kinds of questions: Why does genre need ethics? Why does ethics need genre? How is ethics related to and distinguished from ideology as currently used in cultural studies? How does a generic ethical method come to terms with history and historical change? How is a generic ethical method related to religion? Does genre reinforce the concept of the ethical agent? This book will therefore have a broad audience, including scholars whose fields range from the Renaissance to the present, theorists and philosophers whose interests include ethics, cultural studies, and ideologies, and educationists pursuing methods for graduates and undergraduates. The autobiographical introduction serves as the "hook," as our creative writers say, for this audience. Generically, it is experimental, being at once scholarly, pedagogical, and autobiographical."--BOOK JACKET.
