Works By
Rachel Hunter, who published six novels and a conduct-book between 1801 and 1810, says that she began writing at an advanced age. Her novels are sprawling and over-crowded; but her ingenious, role-playing critical prefaces, and her habit of including a fictional author's persona among her characters, give her a particular interest in the history of the novel.
