Parenting in England 1760-1830 Emotion, Identity, and Generation By Bailey
Parenting in England is the first study of the world of parenting in late Georgian England. The author, Joanne Bailey, traces ideas about parenthood in a Christian society that was responding to new cultural trends of sensibility, romanticism and domesticity, along with Enlightenment ideasabout childhood and self. All these shaped how people, from the poor to the genteel, thought about themselves as parents, and remembered their own parents.

With meticulous attention to detail, Bailey illuminates the range of intense emotions provoked by parenthood by investigating a rich array of sources from memoirs and correspondence, to advice literature, fiction, and court records, to prints, engravings, and ballads. Parenting was also a profoundlyembodied experience, and the book captures the effort, labour, and hard work it entailed.

Such parental investment meant that the experience was fundamental to the forging of national, familial, and personal identities. It also needed more than two parents and this book uncovers the hitherto hiddenworld of shared parenting. Yet being a parent was a contingent experience adapting fromhour to hour, year to year, and child to child.

It was at once precarious, as children and parents succumbed to fatal diseases and accidents, yet it was also enduring because parent-child relationships were not ended by death: lost children and parents lived on in memory.
