Chapter Summary

This essay explores the emotional expression of an eighteenth-century Irish woman, Mary Shackleton, during her courtship with William Leadbeater. It draws upon her diary, letters and poems to identify the external social and cultural forces that shaped her courtship experience, and explores the complex, and only partially visible, dynamic that shaped her emotional expression. It identifies her network of young women friends, religious experience, and engagement with a wider intellectual world as the guide-posts to this emotional expression.
