The Bluestocking Archive

This archive assumes a deep relation between the intellectual and social movement of the Bluestockings, the culture and cult of Sensibility and High Romanticism. It is an archive of texts by or relating to the eighteenth-century British Bluestocking Circle and the second generation Blues, including predecessor texts, and literature of sensibility as it is derived from the Bluestockings' concerns with aesthetics, and with women's aesthetic achievements.
