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 , 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 and Blake referred to as a "Mary" persecuted by "foul Fiends." Annotation c.

From the Publisher
"Johnson has assembled 14 essays by the leading scholars in the field to produce one of the most authoritative and wide-ranging studies of Wollstonecraft to date, one that treats not only the famous "Vindication" but also her novels, letters, travel writing, and political and religious though. The collection will prove most useful to upper-division undergraduates and beginning graduate students." Choice novel
