Read full description of the books:



A selection of letters of lady Mary Wortley Montagu to her various correspondents, this little and, regretfully, short book is truly amazing, funny, charming and not dull at all!!! Written during the time of embassy of her husband, Edward Wortley Montagu to the Sublime Porte (1716-1717), these letters expose the differences between the Western and Eastern civilizations, and show the ability of lady Mary Wortley Montagu not to judge the matters solely from the Western, i. e. the European point of view. She manifests great respect for the cultures encountered during her voyage and her stay in the Ottoman Empire, but still manages to criticise certain aspects of the above-mentioned cultures with wit, humour and vivacity of her spirit.
