1790 Dangers of Coquetry
Critical Review, 70 (September 1790): 339.


The moral to be drawn form this work is so good, that we are blind to the dullness, the insipidity, and improbability of the narrative.  “It teaches that indiscretion may produce as fatal effects as actual guilt; and that even the appearance of impropriety (especially in women) cannot be too carefully avoided.”
