Julie A. Shaffer is an Assistant Professor of English at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.
Mary Robinson's Walsingham is at once a novel of ideas, sentimental romance, gothic adventure and worldly satire. This responsibly edited and amply annotated edition effectively demonstrates how the work integrates the literary, social, educational and gender politics of the 1790s. Shaffer's thoroughly researched introduction serves as a resource for students and scholars alike." - Laura L. Runge, University of South Florida
