“Political Affairs of the Heart” is “thought-provoking”

Political Affairs of the Heart: Female Travel Writers, the Sentimental Travelogue, and Revolution, 1775-1800

by Linda Van Netten Blimke

“Blimke’s writing is lively, the travelogues are intriguing, the rhetorical and historical interpretations are well-grounded in period and contemporary literatures, and the arguments for the political import of not only each woman’s individual writing but their impact within their times and communities are thought-provoking.”
