From sheer force of personality BWC made a more lasting impression on her contemporaries than was perhaps justified by her two nineteenth-century novels, her scattered essays and reviews, and her twentieth-century book of edited letters and some family and literary reminiscence. After her death a slim volume of her sayings was published.
