By introduction I mean the introduction in the book. Richard Holmes places Wollstonecraft and her biography in context, and does this admirably. Godwin's text, though a superb example of the circumlocutory verbosity of the age, elegantly written, is less informative than one might expect. What is clear from his words, however, is that Wollstonecraft was very much a woman, and not at all a woman trying to be like a man.
Overall a worthwhile read for anyone with a fascination for this remarkable woman.
