"A mother's love * If there lie one thing pure, Where all beside is sullied; That can endure When all else pass away: If there he aught Surpassing human deed, or word, or thought, -- It is a mother's love!" Maternal Affection has displayed itself in a thousand interesting forms, differing from each other according to the various circumstances which have occasioned them: nil alike prove how deep and endearing is that sacred tie which binds a mother to her offspring, to purchase whose safety she has often been content to make the greatest sacrifices, esteeming life itself of trivial value when held in comparison with the welfare of such beloved objects. DEATH OF THE MARCHIONESS DE SPADAKA. "Her pure and holy spirit now Doth intercede at the eternal throne !" -- L. E. L. The Marchioness de Spadara was at Messina during tlis dreadful earthquake which happened in Sicily, in' 17S2. Fainting from alarm, at its commen "ement, she was conveyed by her husband to the fort, while he prepared a boat for their departure. While he was absent his wife recovered her senses, when she found that her infant son was left behind: she ran in the utmost haste to her house, which was still standing, and proceeding to the room where the child lay, snatched it up from the cradle. Overwhelmed with joy, she was about to return, when she found that the staircase had fallen. She then ran froin one part of the house to another, searching in vain for some means of escape, till the whole building was destroyed, except a balcony, to which she flew, and with her infant son in her arms, implored assistance from the multitude: no one, however, came to her relief, and the remainder of the building fell, burying the tender mother and her child in the ruins. .

This study proposes interpretive strategies for nineteenth-century American women's novels. Harris contends that women in the nineteenth century read subversively, 'processing texts according to gender based imperatives'. Beginning with Susannah Rowson's best-selling seduction novel Charlotte Temple (1791), and ending with Willa Cather's O Pioneers! (1913), Harris scans white, middle-class women's writing throughout the nineteenth century. In the process she both explores reading behaviour and formulates a literary history for mainstream nineteenth-century American women's fiction. Through most of the twentieth century, women's novels of the earlier period have been denigrated as conventional, sentimental, and overwritten. Harris shows that these conditions are actually narrative strategies, rooted in cultural imperatives and, paradoxically, integral to the later development of women's texts that call for women's independence. Working with actual women's diaries and letters, Harris first shows what contemporary women sought from the books they read. She then applies these reading strategies to the most popular novels of the period, proving that even the most apparently retrograde demonstrate their heroines' abilities to create and control areas culturally defined as male.
