This talk introduces guests to a fascinating gallery of late 18th century ladies, who met at great houses in London for the purpose of intellectual and literary conversation.  Among them were Hannah More, Elizabeth Carter and Fanny Burney.  Dr Johnson praised their wit and learning, saying, ‘three such women are nowhere else to be found’.

John Wiltshire continues our Jane Austen series with a set of three lectures. Professor Wiltshire is the author of several books about Jane Austen, and has edited Mansfield Park for the authoritative Cambridge edition.  His most recent books are The Cinematic Jane Austen (2009) and The Making of Dr Johnson (2009)
