This chapter assesses the debate over the extent of Edgeworth's linguistic and cultural radicalism in the national tale, and argues that her use of language is in fact quite similar to Burns', being read differently in part at least as a result of class prejudice. A detailed account of the innovative quality of her major works, and their relationship to the writing and ideas of Adam Smith and other writers follows.

Keywords:   Bull, Edgeworth, National Tale, Sentiment, Adam Smith
