O Dwyer, R. 'Female agency' in Lady Morgan's The Princess, or, The Béguine (1835). A Garland of Words, Munira H. Mutran, Laura P.Z. Izarra and Beatriz Kopschitz X. Bastos, eds., Sao Paulo: Humanitas, 2011, pp. 415-425.
This little-known novel expresses two of Lady Morgan's enthusiasms: her love of Europe and interest in travelling there, and her developing feminism. She had previously provoked controversy by her combination of travel and politics in France (1817) and Italy (1821). In 1829 and again in 1833 she and her husband visited what had been known as the Low Countries (Holland and Belgium), and these trips provided the setting for The Princess, or, The Béguine (1835).
