Description de l'ouvrage

9 octobre 2008
Belinda was considered controversial in its day for its depiction of an interracial marriage. Edgeworth herself said she removed the interracial marriage from the third edition of the book "because my father has great delicacies and scruples of conscience about encouraging such marriages."
This edition preserves the complete text of the original story which was considered so controversial in its time.
Literary critic George Saintsbury argued that Jane Austen's naturalistic female characters owed a debt to this society novel's spirited heroine. Belinda was itself in the tradition of society novels by writers such as Frances Sheridan and Frances Burney, who also charted the travails of bright young women in search of a good marriage.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I confess. I had to read it for class 5 décembre 1997
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I know. No one ever wants to read a book for class. But in my 18th Century Women Novelists class we read Edgeworth's _Belinda_ and as a self-indulgent lover of romance novels, I found this to be right up there with Devereaux and McNaught. (I know...I wince as I even type their sacred names...much less dare to compare their masterful works with a 200 year old novel). I promise, this book is a treat and a treasure. _Belinda_ is the story of a young woman who is entering her first season in London under the tutledge of Lady Delacour. Delacour is a classic yet entertaining example of the creation of a facade. We all knew people like her in high school. Other characters include Mrs. Freke (pronounced "freak") who duels with pistols and dresses in men's clothing--now keep in mind this is the 18th century. She was supposed to be wearing a corset and some petticoats. Then there's Lord Delacour, who can't decide if he's a whipped husband or the lord of his manor, or if he should just have another drink. The entire story revolves around the theme of how life and people are not always what they seem. It also touches upon racism, sexual identity, gender roles and self-image of both women and men. But the delightful discovery of a character as intelligent and resourceful as Belinda makes this book truly worthwhile. She is cut from the same mold as Austen's Elizabeth Bennet or Emma-- she learns from the follies of others and in the end becomes a very admirable character that the reader is, well, proud of. After a semester of women ruined by this lord or that one, finding Belinda restored my battered sense of pride in my ancestral gender. I recommend this book to any one who likes Austen, anyone who loves a good romance--of course she falls in love!-- and most of all, anyone who has had to read a doldrum of a book for class and needs some restoration.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A sloppy edition of an interesting book 30 avril 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Belinda is Edgeworth at her best -- full of social comment and satire, gender- and other kinds of politics. It's great to have this novel in print, as a companion and contrast to the very dominant Austen. But I have to say this edition needs reworking; not only are there typos, but the notes are very spotty. Example: one character plays an early form of roulette, called E.O.; do we get a note on social attitudes to new games of chance other than cards? No. Further example: a character goes to visit the Chevalier D'Eon. Do we get a note explaining that this is a real person -- a crossdressing swordfighting real person?!!!!! No. Shame, World's Classics! How can you expect people to keep reading the notes when they're no help?

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Seven Treasures Publications paperback version: No Frills 13 avril 2010
Par K. McMahan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Belinda was a good read, but beware when considering purchasing the paperback version from Seven Treasures Publications. This is an absolutely-no-frills version. There is only the text of the novel, and it looks like it was created from an OCR scan of the text. There is no introduction, no forward and there are no explanatory notes at all. Also, there are many instances of what must be a letter mis-read by the scanner: numerous instances of "he" instead of "be", etc. This is distracting but with a little perseverance you can get through it.

Also, this version claims to contain "the complete text of the controversial original first edition." I am no expert, but other sources indicate one controversy to be the marriage of Juba (a black Jamaican servant) and Lucy (a white English farmgirl). In this version, Chapter XIX has Lucy marrying James Jackson, which reportedly distinguishes a later edition that removed the Juba-Lucy union to please Edgeworth's father.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I loved this book, but this edition .... 23 février 2013
Par Beeswax, None of Yours - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The story itself was a five-star story. But contrary to the claims here, this is *not* the controversial edition. The interracial marriage between Lucy and Juba is omitted and changed. Also this edition has many typos.

This is the first of Maria Edgeworth's works that I have read, and I am very glad to have discovered another brilliant female author. I chose Belinda to read after finding out that Jane Austen was "a fan".

I found Belinda to be thoroughly enjoyable, with engaging characters and wonderful insights into the human condition and the society of the day. I will need to re-read it as I am sure I have missed many subtle points. I will perhaps look for another version with more helpful notes, and will definitely translate the parts spoken in French next time. There has undoubtedly been much written on the issues of race and the like brought up in this work that would be an interesting read.

I look forward to delving into her other works, and only hope I did not read the best one first!
