Examples of women's friendship, as in the letters of Meta Moller Klopstock, Louise Gottsched, and Helmina von Chezy, emphasize the public nature that women's private letters could assume through expansive circles of correspondents. An examination of the varying perspectives in the letters of Anna Louisa Karsch, Sophie Mereau, and Karoline von Gunderrode shows publishing writers who continually repositioned themselves according to their diverse roles in life. Passages from letters by Rahel Varnhagen and Caroline Schlegel-Schelling demonstrate how they granted importance to the trivial and thereby lent aesthetic value to their letters through skillful narration. An investigation of changes that Bettine von Arnim made to original letters when she edited and then published her correspondence with famous writers of her day addresses the issue of publication.

In recent years there has been a renewed interest in correspondence both as a literary genre and as cultural practice, and several studies have appeared, mainly spanning the centuries between Early and Late Modern times. However, it is between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries that the roots of contemporary usage begin to evolve, thanks to the circulation of new educational materials and more widespread schooling practices. In this volume, chapters representing diverse but complementary methodological approaches discuss linguistic and discursive practices of correspondence in Late Modern Europe, in order to offer material for the comparative, cross-linguistic analyses of patterns occurring in different social contexts. The volume aims to provide a general and solid methodological structure for the study of largely untapped language material from a variety of comparable sources, and is expected to appeal to scholars and students interested in the linguistic history of epistolary writing practices, as well as to all those interested in the more recent history of European languages.

Once nearly as ubiquitous as dictionaries and cookbooks are today, letter-writing manuals and their predecessors served to instruct individuals not only on the art of letter composition but also, in effect, on personal conduct. Poster and Mitchell contend that the study of letter-writing theory, which bridges rhetorical theory and grammatical studies, represents an emerging discipline in need of definition. In this volume, they gather the contributions of eleven experts to sketch the contours of epistolary theory and collect the historic and bibliographic materials - from Isocrates to email - that form the basis for its study.
