NORTON: The Collected Writings of Caroline Norton (1808-1877)

Caroline Norton is an important figure in the history of women.  A celebrated writer and a noted beauty, she fought the authorities to establish her existence as a 'person' in the eyes of the law (rather than being the property of her husband) and to win custody of her sons following a bruising divorce suit.

This project brings together:

  • Her polemical pamphlets, featuring A Plain Letter to the Lord Chancellor on the Infant Custody BillLetters to the Mob, by Libertas (Reprinted from the Morning Chronicle, 1848), and A letter to the Queen on Lord Chancellor Cranworth’s Marriage and Divorce Bill.
  • All five of her published novels - The Wife and Woman’s Reward (1835), Stuart of Dunleath (1851), Lost and Saved (1863), Old Sir Douglas (1868), and The Rose of Jericho (1870).
  • All nine volumes of her poetry, including The Sorrows of Rosalie (1829), The Undying One (1830), The Coquette (1835), A Voice from the Factories (1836), The Dream (1840), The Child of the Islands (1845), Aunt Carry’s Ballads (1847), Tales & Sketches (1850), and The Lady of La Garaye (1862).
  • There are also collections of her prose and poetry from the Court Magazine and The English Annual.
"I have no rights.  Only wrongs."
