    [synopsis] => The Female Quixote (1752) is a novel by Charlotte Lennox. A parody of Miguel de Cervantes' Don Quixote, Lennox's novel was an immediate critical and commercial success. Boosted by praise from Samuel Johnson, Henry Fielding, and Samuel Richardson, The Female Quixote launched Lennox's career as, a leading author of English plays, poetry, and novels. Although she failed to regain her early heights as, an author, Lennox and her work have undergone positive reappraisal by twentieth-century feminist scholars, securing her long-under-recognized reputation as, an important precursor to Jane Austen and countless other writers.

Raised in a remote English castle by her father, Arabella makes up for a lack of formal education with an endless appetite for French romance novels. Although exceedingly intelligent, her lack of experience and overactive imagination lead her to fantasize about the world outside. Envisioning a life of adventure and romance, she receives a rude awakening when, upon the death of her father, she is to be left his estate on the condition she marry her cousin Glanville. Making her way to London via Bath, Arabella makes a positive impression on the young gentleman, who recognizes her innocence but remains determined to love her. As he attempts to educate her on the realities of city life, his friend Sir George Bellmour tries to take advantage of her through a courtship veiled in the chivalry of her beloved novels. When a case of mistaken identity leads to Arabella being gravely, injured, Glanville is, forced to decide whether, the young woman he cares for, will ever manage to come to terms with their shared reality. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Charlotte Lennox's The Female Quixote is, a classic of English literature reimagined for modern readers.
