Cecilia : Or Memoirs of an Heiress Paperback

Edited by Peter Sabor, Margaret Anne Doody

Part of the Oxford World's Classics series


Cecilia is an heiress, but she can only keep her fortune if her husband will consent to take her surname.

Fanny Burney's unusual love story and deft social satire was much admired on its first publication in 1782 for its subtle interweaving of comedy, humanity, and social analysis.

Controversial in its time, this eighteenth-century novel seems entirely fresh in relation to late twentieth-century concerns. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
