Mary Hays: Life, Writings, and Correspondence

Announcement from Timothy Whelan:

Mary Hays: Life, Writings, and Correspondence presents the most complete accounting to date of the life and career of Mary Hays (1759-1843). The website is designed to enable students and scholars to gain open and free access to all pertinent materials related to Hays’s familial and social circles, her writings, and wide correspondence, including some 90 letters by her close friend Eliza Fenwick (1766-1840) appearing for the first time in their entirety. More than 400 letters, fully annotated, are included, along with complete texts of all her periodical writings and all reviews of her own writings, as well as an extensive genealogy of Hays never before seen, the latter owing much to the diary of her long-time friend and relation through marriage, Henry Crabb Robinson (1775-1867). The site has been created, compiled, and maintained by Timothy Whelan, Georgia Southern University, and can be found at
