Fourteen articles by English professors at UK and US universities focus upon MW's letters, education writings, thoughts on the French Revolution, literary reviews, the political tradition of , the religious foundations of MW's feminism, her relationship to the literature of advice and instruction, other women writers and poets of her day, her novels, her relationship to sexuality, and her reception and legacies.
