61 Knox intends his anthology to function as a means for school children to memorize, transcribe, recite and imitate, and he divides his volumes accordingly into four distinct sections. However, the anthology in no way encourages connective reading. 62 In chapter 7 of her Strictures on the Modern System of Female Education (1799), Hanna More offers an implicit critique of Knox’s anthology making. 65 More’s commentary relates directly to her ideas about how to reconfigure the education of women.
