Works By
In her single extant, late eighteenth-century work, Lucy Hutton sounds like a trenchantly feminist theologian, a biblical and in some sense a literary critic. She chose the form of epistles for an earlier printed work which does not survive, and refers to the writing of familiar letters, which are also not apparently extant.
