Adopt an Author is a Special Study Unit in which third-year undergraduates choose to focus on a relatively unknown writer and two of her works, supplementing the material in CW3 (Corvey Women Writers on the Web).

This project focuses on Sarah Harriet Burney (1772-1844)

Claire Murley's Adopt an Author material comprises:

Biography of Sarah Harriet Burney

Plot Synopsis of Clarentine (1796)
