The Cambridge Companion to Mary Wollstonecraft / Edition 1by Claudia L. Johnson
Pub. Date: 05/28/2011
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Wollstonecraft was a relentless arguer in virtually all her writings, and this volume addresses a wide range of them. Fourteen articles by English professors at UK and US universities focus upon MW's letters, education writings, thoughts on the French Revolution, literary reviews, the political tradition of Vindications, the religious foundations of MW's feminism, her relationship to the literature of advice and instruction, other women writers and poets of her day, her novels, her relationship to sexuality, and her reception and legacies. An excellent aid to teaching the works of the controversial woman Horace Walpole called a hyena in petticoats and Blake referred to as a "Mary" persecuted by "foul Fiends." Annotation c.
