Product Description

Review

... this edition does away with the idea of M. W. as Tom Paine in Skirts. Her mind is deepter and richer than his; her transmutation of the turmoil of her experiences during the revolutionary period in France is remarkable. (The Observer) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Janet Todd is Professor of English Literature at the University of East Anglia.

First Sentence
It is not necessary, with courtly insincerity, to apologise to you for thus intruding on your precious time, not to profess that I think it an honour to discuss an important subject with a man whose literary abilities have raised him to notice in the state. Read the first page

The Thinking Woman's Woman 18 Jan. 2012
By J. Stensrude - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Nearly two hundred years before the forceful flowering of feminism in Western countries, Mary Wollstonecraft penned two important essays (both in the form of letters of protest to the writings of male thinkers of the time), one setting forth her protest against social injustices of her time, and the other declaring the intellectual equality of women and setting forth in detail the actions needed to correct the unfair status of women. The complete text of both Vindications are included in this edition. It is of interest to note that she did not manage her personal romantic affairs as wisely as her essays suggest she would have liked. She had one daughter out of wedlock and died giving birth to another after her marriage to William Godwin. This second daughter, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, married political radical and poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. Even as the daughter of the two most famous radicals of the time and as the wife of another, Mary Shelley became, in the long term, more famous than any of them as the author of the novel Frankenstein.

Wollstonecraft's Vindications are a must have 28 Oct. 2013
By Valentin Beaumanoir - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Her vindications are well-written and well-argued. They bring on a particular perspective that anyone who reads this will completely understand and agree too. I like this version in particular because it comes with both the vindications, annotations, and notes. This is a timeless book that should be in everyone's bookshelf.
She was a wonderful writer and activist in her time 20 Mar. 2015
By Heather Ogle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Read parts of this for a philosophy class. I had not heard of Mary Wollstonecraft before I took that class and I am ashamed of that fact. She was a wonderful writer and activist in her time. Much of her philosophy applies so well today. A welcome addition to any class studying women's rights in a current or historical context.
