Martineau, Harriet: Life in the Sick-Room. v1 26 Mar 2016

Harriet Martineau was born in 1802, the sixth of eight children, to a Unitarian family of Huguenot asylum seeker background. Despite being deaf for most of her life she was a prolific author, traveller, abolitionist, feminist, sociologist, and political commentator, and one of the first woman journalists. Her clear and simple style and her ability to explain complicated issues and to present her ideas in the form of stories gave her a wide readership and made her famous and wealthy; her first major series outsold Charles Dickens' books.

In 1836-7 at the height of her fame and wealth she visited America, and on her return wrote Society in America and Retrospect of Western Travel.

She was incapacitated by illness from 1839-44, became very ill again in 1855 and wrote her Autobiography - though it was not published until her death in 1876 after she had written many of her major works.

In 1846 she visited Egypt, Palestine, and Syria, and wrote Eastern Life, Present and Past.

Life in the Sick-Room was published anonymously in London in 1844. A later American version attributed the book to Harriet Martineau, omitted the opening French quotation, and included an extensive foreword.

This ebook contains the English version taken from the ePub version on the Internet Archive, supplies a cover, redesigns the title page and the lead in quotations to each essay, corrects typos, reinstates diacritics and italics, simplifies hyphenation according to Oxford Dictionary online, uses the modern spelling for Shakespeare and Goethe, and adds two translations and two annotations.
