          Sinopsis
          The book represents the personal diary of Frances Burney, married D'Arblay, covering the period from 1779 to 1840. Spanning from her early adolescence, it gives away some intimate details, Fanny's reactions on the publication of her novels, and also how she came to the Queen's notice and hence into her service. The diary is a priceless resource for historians offering some insights into the life in royal service, and providing an eye-witness account of George III as seen from Fanny's position as second keeper of the robes to Queen Charlotte. Frances Burney (1752-1840) was an English satirical novelist, diarist and playwright. She is best known for her novels Evelina, Cecilia, Camilla and The Wanderer. Burney's novels explore the lives of English aristocrats, and satirize their social pretensions and personal foibles, with an eye to larger questions such as the politics of female identity. She has gained critical respect in her own right, but she also foreshadowed such novelists of manners with a satirical bent as Jane Austen and Thackeray.
          Acerca de Frances Burney

          Frances Burney (Fanny Burney) was a British novelist who wrote four novels, eight plays, and one biography in her lifetime, and left behind 20 volumes of journals and letters after her death. Self-educated, Burney began writing at the age of 10, and published her first novel, Evelina, anonymously in 1778. Burney followed Evelina's success with Cecilia, Camilla, and The Wanderer, all of which explored the lives of English aristocrats and the role of women in society. Burney's novels were enormously popular during her lifetime, inspiring both Jane Austen and William Makepeace Thackeray, and her journals are recognized for their uncommonly accurate and candid portrayal of 18th-century England. Burney died in Bath, England, in 1840.
