Cornelia’s story

In ‘Cornelia and Campanian Lady’ we can see many elements evident in Priscilla’s later writing. For example, the use of women characters and often the woman on her own with small children. She emphasises the principle role of the mother in the education of her children and in guiding their intellectual and moral development. The beauty of the natural world is highlighted along with Priscilla’s habit of mildly scolding the trivial and fashionable pursuits of some young women. All these elements feature to some degree throughout Priscilla’s books.
