Overview

Mary Wollstonecraft is widely recognized as a social and political thinker of major significance and as one of the most important and influential of the early feminists. Some of her works, such as A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, have become central texts of feminist thought. Written in the eighteenth century, her social commentary challenged the other eminent thinkers of the day, including Edmund Burke and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and confronted the major events of the period, such as the French Revolution. Wollstonecraft was a persuasive writer and thinker who never felt compelled to separate her female experience from her writing.

A Wollstonecraft Anthology brings together the well-known and lesser-known texts: A Vindication of the Rights of Men, The French Revolution, her early educational writings, her letters to Gilbert Imlay and William Godwin, and her reviews of fiction. This volume provides a comprehensive overview of Wollstonecraft's work and includes a biographic introduction by Janet Todd.
