The well-known Delarivier Manley quietly took over editorship of the partisan Tory Examiner (1710-14) from Jonathan Swift in 1711, becoming the first woman known to write and edit a political periodical in England. While she did so via the male eidolon that Swift had developed, Rachel Carnell’s sensitive reading of her contributions against Manley’s other work, including the New Atlantis, reveals important divergences from the male-established model: the Tory public sphere Manley allowed herself to imagine was not an idealized or even especially inclusive or just one. Though she was free, writing in masculine periodical mode, to relish mocking the rival Whiggish periodical Medley and Arthur Maynwaring, Manley also registered that public discourse between men had strictures inimical to feminine voices and female friendships.
