AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This paper 'draws on epistolary theory, and theories of epistolary fiction, of women's letter writing, of autobiography and autobiographical memory. Concerned as it is with women's letters, lives and fiction - specifically Elizabeth Jolley's Georges' Wife trilogy - it became a tribute not only to Dorothy Green, but also to Elizabeth Jolley herself' (p.105).
