Brilliant Women: 18th Century Bluestockings

Brilliant Women: 18th-Century BluestockingsElizabeth Eger and Lucy Peltz

The National Portrait Gallery in London organized an exhibit about the bluestockings this year, and published Brilliant Women to accompany it. Not surprisingly, Elizabeth Eger, who teaches English at King‘s College, and Lucy Peltz, a curator at the gallery, did a brilliant job. Portraits from the Gallery‘s collection illustrate the scholarly, yet accessible text. The book also explores the bluestocking legacy, with the inclusion of a bas bleu lineage from Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley to Germaine Greer and other contemporary figures. Full of color plates and other images, Brilliant Women celebrates the historical import and social impact of its remarkable and fascinating subjects. From Bas Bleu Booksellers.
