Louis Sebastien Mercier : Mon Bonnet de Nuit

'While at Mitchelstown she brushed up on her French by reading Madame de Genlis's "Letters on Education", Louis Sebastien Mercier's comedy "Mon Bonnet de Nuit", and the Baroness de Montoliere's novel "Caroline de Litchfield". The first she pronounced "wonderfully clever", and it may well have proved helpful to her as a teacher; the last she described as "One of the prettiest things I have ever read", and it perhaps suggested that her own life could serve as the basis of a sentimental novel'.

Century: 1700-1799     Reader/Listener/Group: Mary Wollstonecraft      Print: Book
