Welcome to the Hidden Histories podcast. This week, Helen Lewis and our guests Sophie Coulombeau, Liz Edwards and Jennie Batchelor thrash out the impossible question: Who is the most interesting female writer of the Eighteenth Century? Liz chooses Hester Thrale Piozzi, Sophie makes the case for Frances Burney, and Jennie opts for the elusive Anonymous.
Welcome to Hidden Histories, hosted by Helen Lewis. In each series we explore a subject that the textbooks hid, held-back or hijacked, starting with “The Great Forgetting: women writers before Austen”.
