The History of Jemmy and Jenny Jessamy

Front Cover
University Press of Kentucky, Dec 9, 2005 - Fiction - 456 pages
The History of Jemmy and Jenny Jessamy, originally published as three volumes in 1753, is the last work by the prolific English novelist Eliza Haywood. Out of print since the early nineteenth century and never available in an edited and fully-annotated modern edition such as this, Haywood’s novel is an important early example of the sentimental novel of domestic manners. In its depiction of marriage and courtship among the leisure class of the mid-eighteenth century, Haywood’s novel is remarkable for its unsentimental realism.
