Charlotte Lennox: A Powerful Mind is a critical biography of a mid-eighteenth-century London author who in her seventeen works, including novels, plays, translations, a critical work on Shakespeare, and a women’s periodical, was at the cutting edge of debates about literature and gender during the Enlightenment. Unlike earlier writing about her life, this biography takes Lennox’s skill as a writer as its focal point. Also earlier biographers did not have the benefit of a cache of seventy-two letters, which brings to light Lennox’s skill as a marketer of her works. Through my extensive research and close reading, it has become clear that Lennox’s primary goal was to foster female intelligence. I have written and published on Lennox for twenty years and during this fellowship I will be able to complete this biography by finishing two chapters, writing the last one, and polishing the entire manuscript to submit to publishers.
