    1. A wonderful anecdotal glimpse into life in Europe and Turkey in the 18th century. Lady Mary Wortley Montagu lived from 1689 to 1762.For me, this book is divided up into 3 disparate groups of letters. Lady M’s life in England – (rather boring), Lady M’s life in Italy – (quietly charming) , and Lady M’s travels on the continent, and subsequent stay in Turkey – (absolutely fantastic!)Her letters written in England for me were a bit of a struggle – whilst protesting that she dislikes g [...]


    2. "She was, like her age, cold and hard; she was infinitely unromantic; she was often cynical, and sometimes gross." --Lytton Strachey on Lady MontaguStrachey is always recommending books to me from beyond the grave.


    3. Lady Mary's letters constitute a treasure trove of insights concerning Enlightenment dispositions (she at one point affirms the yet-to-be formulated Kantian view of beauty as representation without desire as obvious). Of course, everyone is most preoccupied with her descriptive observations of the Orient (which are excessive: "I am afraid," she says at one point, "you will accuse me of extravagance in this Description."). These descriptions were, moreover, what was read before incipient feminism [...]


    4. Grundy's edition is obviously definitive, and extremely well-annotated. Reading LMWM's letters is like following a brilliant and multi-faceted tour guide through the eighteenth century. Her letters to Francesco Algarotti, in particular, shine with vulnerability that cuts across time. I loved her critiques of her own social positioning ("I am enraged that my body was formed to wear skirts"), as well as her teasing verse-exchanges with the pansexual Lord Hervey. You can also see her trying to deli [...]


    5. I fell in love with Lady Mary after reading her complete Turkish Embassy letters a few years ago, and naturally I was curious to see what the rest of her life was like. The early letters are really quite dull, especially considering the failure of her marriage to Wortley. Some of the later letters from her retirement in Italy, however, are really very interesting, and full of worthy advice. In the end, though, it is the Turkish letters which are by far the best, so I would rather recommend the c [...]



    6. She's such a quick-witted, ridiculously smart and often bitingly sarcastic proto feminist who was in love with a gay man. What's not to love?


    7. I read this as part of a course in eighteenth century literature - and loved it. A fascinating and witty woman; she seems to jump right off the page.
