A Wollstonecraft Anthologyby Janet M. Todd
Synopses & Reviews
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. The volume provides a comprehensive overveiw of Wollstonecraft's work and includes a biographical introduction by Janet Todd.
"We should welcome this reissue of Janet Todd's edition of A Wollstonecraft Anthology....Wollstonecraft has always been recognized as a distinctive, sometimes notorious, champion for women's rights; this anthology reminds us these include emotional and intellectual as well as political rights."
