The Coquette, one of the two 'best-selling' American novels of the 18th century, tells the much-publicized story of the seduction and death of Elizabeth Whitman, a poet from Hartford, Connecticut. Written as a series of letters-between the heroine and her friends and lovers-it describes her long, tortuous courtship by two men, neither of whom perfectly suits her.
