CRITICISM, BRITISH women authors, SENTIMENTALISM in literature, and ROMANTICISM
The article analyzes the book "Letters Written During a Short Residence in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark" ("Letters From Norway") by Mary Wollstonecraft, as at once a travel narrative, autobiography, and sentimental discourse. It is also examined as a piece of late "Sensibility" literature, a forerunner of Romanticism, and a groundbreaking work in women's literature.
