Her exploration of the passions, first published in 1798, is here reissued with a wealth of contextual materials including The Introductory Discourse, Baillies own brand of feminist literary criticism. The three plays included here are Count Basil: A Tragedy and The Tryal: A Comedy, which show love from opposing perspectives- and De Monfort: A Tragedy, which explores the drama of hate. Among the appendices are materials on the contemporary philosophical understanding of the passions, and contemporary reviews.--BOOK JACKET.
