Martineau, Harriet: Harriet Martineau in Household Words. v2 29 July 2015

Harriet Martineau was born in 1802, the sixth of eight children, to a Unitarian family of Huegenot background. Despite being deaf for most of her life she was a prolific author and traveller, an abolitionist, feminist, and sociologist, and one of the first woman journalists. After her father's death in 1829 she became the main financial support for her mother and sisters, and became well known. Her clear and simple style and her ability to explain complicated issues and to present many of her ideas in the form of stories gave her a wide readership, and made her wealthy. She was severely ill from 1839-44, and again from 1855 when she wrote her Autobiography -- though it was not published till her death in 1876.

At the end of March 1850 Charles Dickens started Household Words, a weekly journal which contained both fiction and non-fiction. Much of the content dealt with the social issues of the time. This ebook contains twenty contributions Harriet Martineau made to Household Words from May 1850 to the 1851 Christmas issue. The first few were fiction, and later articles were about industries. They give a fascinating picture of life and thought in her time.

The source material was the text files from the Dickens Journals Online site, checked against the images of the original pages. I have silently corrected typos and inconsistencies, simplified punctuation, and made changes to spelling and hyphenation using oxforddictionaries.com. In the 19th century 'receipt' meant 'recipe', and I have silently changed the words.

The cover was adapted from an image provided by the National Portrait Gallery, and the author's image was adapted from an image provided by the HistorysHeroes site.

Edit 29 July 2015 Version 1 removed, version 2 uploaded

There was an article missing in version 1, and some articles were out of order. Version 2 has all the articles that Harriet Martineau published in Household Words that I could find, in the order of publication.
