Out of love, a mother hides her child's differences from the world. 1670, St Albans Midwife Abigale Harris protects her adopted child from prejudice, superstition and ignorance by hiding the truth about her from everybody in their busy market town. Throughout her life, she teaches Mary the importance of keeping her secret, placing strong constraints to guide and shape her. Twenty-one years later, Mary is good, kind and loyal. She is a caring sister to Abigale's two other adopted daughters and an indispensable assistant to Abigale in the birthing chamber. But Mary is increasingly unhappy and changes in her make it evident to Abigale that she may have made the wrong decision all those years ago. Is it too late to right the wrong she's done Mary and give her back her life? Or will revealing the secret destroy their livelihood and bring ruin to Abigale's whole family?
Christopher Smart and Satire explores the lively and idiosyncratic world of satire in the eighteenth-century periodical, focusing on the way that writers adopted personae to engage with debates taking place during the British Enlightenment. Taking Christopher Smart's audacious and hitherto underexplored Midwife, or Old Woman's Magazine (1750-1753) as her primary source, Min Wild provides a rich examination of the prizewinning Cambridge poet's adoption of the bizarre, sardonic 'Mary Midnight' as his alter-ego. Her analysis provides insights into the difficult position in which eighteenth-century writers were placed, as ideas regarding the nature and functions of authorship were gradually being transformed. At the same time, Wild also demonstrates that Smart's use of 'Mary Midnight' is part of a tradition of learned wit, having an established history and characterized by identifiable satirical and rhetorical techniques. Wild's engagement with her exuberant source materials establishes the skill and ingenuity of Smart's often undervalued, multilayered prose satire. As she explores Smart's use of a peculiarly female voice, Wild offers us a picture of an ingenious and ribald wit whose satirical overview of society explores, overturns, and anatomises questions of gender, politics, and scientific and literary endeavors.
