By Deborah Anna Logan

Memorials of Harriet Martineau via Maria Weston Chapman was once released in 1877 as quantity 3 of Harriet Martineau’s Autobiography. whereas the triple-decker used to be a well-liked structure of the period, the configuration of a two-volume autobiography authored by way of one and a one-volume biography written by means of one other is unusual. Indeed, the work’s publishing background unearths that, in reissues of the Autobiography, the Memorials volume was once no longer reproduced; whereas a few may declare that the matter is with the editorAmerican abolitionist Chapmanrather than the contents, the actual fact continues to be that the majority of the quantity involves fundamental fabrics written through Martineau which are on hand nowhere else, released or archival. Chapman’s participation within the undertaking was once initially conceived as supplemental, within the occasion that the sick Martineau didn't dwell lengthy sufficient to accomplish her memoirs; because it occurred, Martineau—who complete the 2 volumes and had them privately revealed in 1855—lived one other twenty-one years. while the Autobiography records what Martineau known as the “interior lifestyles” or subjective standpoint on her occupation, Chapman’s quantity addressed the outside through delivering a biographical review of her friend’s lifestyles and paintings, a checklist of her final many years, and a suite of posthumous memorials by means of people with whom her deepest and public lives intersected. Chapman’s function was once to “take up the parallel thread of her external life,—to assemble up and co-ordinate from the fabrics positioned in my fingers the illustrative evidence and fragments by way of her passed over or forgotten; and to teach . . . what no brain can see for itself,—the impact of its personal character at the world.” This quantity is the 1st scholarly variation of the Memorials—a biography of 1 of the most important highbrow girls of the 19th century, informed basically in her personal words.
