Amy Dillwyn

Amy Dillwyn

Amy Dillwyn (1845-1935) was described at the time as "One of the most original women of the age." (Pall Mall Gazette). Born in Swansea, she was a novelist, feminist and pioneering industrialist, taking over the family's failing Spelter Works when her father died and turning them into a commercial success. In the first and most Welsh of her novels, The Rebecca Rioter, she satirises rigid gender roles, and invites her reader to join her in that questioning and ultimately subversive attitude. Considered to be an eccentric with unorthodox and iconoclastic views, she went on to write and publish a further five novels, as well as being a regular, though anonymous, reviewer for The Spectator.
