Open The Door

Book cover
By: (1879-1946)

In "Open The Door," Catherine Carswell provides a raw and intimate portrayal of the Scottish writer and poet, Joanna Baillie. Through meticulous research and insightful analysis, Carswell brings Baillie to life, capturing her passion for writing, her struggles with societal expectations, and her unwavering determination to pursue her craft in a male-dominated industry.

Carswell's writing is vivid and engaging, painting a vivid picture of Baillie's life and times. Her exploration of Baillie's relationships, both personal and professional, offers a nuanced and complex look at the challenges faced by women in the 18th century literary world.

Overall, "Open The Door" is a captivating and thought-provoking read that sheds light on a lesser-known figure in literary history. Carswell's skillful storytelling and deep admiration for Baillie's work make this biography a must-read for anyone interested in women's writing and the history of literature.
