The Early Journals and Letters of Fanny Burney: Volume IX

Some brief overview of book

Fanny Burney was best known in her own time as the author of Evilina and other novels. Her modern reputation, however, rests primarily on her extensive journals and letters. The third of eleven children of Charles Burney, an eminent musician, author, and composer, she began keeping a journal of her experiences in London's musical, theatrical, and literary circles as a shy and precocious girl of 15.

She had a keen intelligence, a marvellous sense of humour, and an exceptional memory, all of which are evident in the detailed picture of contemporary English society presented in her writings. She also gives first-hand descriptions of many of the important figures of the time, such as David Garrick, Christopher Smart, and Antonio Sacchini among others.
