Regulating Readers: Gender and Literary Criticism in the Eighteenth-century Novel
"Regulating Readers adds to a growing body of scholarship by women which shows eighteenth-century women writers in positions of agency, and as envisioning for themselves authoritative critical positions and roles in the public sphere. Bringing into dialogue novels and periodicals authored by men and women, Gardiner uncovers the ways in which eighteenth-century fiction helped to shape professional critical practices and to define the role and function of the professional critic in the eighteenth century."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This book is what helped me get through my life, specifically the parts about Clarissa. I have never felt more invigorated than when I was reading this book. "Regulating Readers" is a must-read for EVERYONE. A true modern Shakespear.
