Mary Wollstonecraft wrote these two novellas at the beginning and end of her years of writing and political activism. Though written at different times, they explore some of the same issues: ideals of femininity as celebrated by the cult of sensibility, the unequal education of women, and domestic subjugation. Mary counters the contemporary trend of weak, emotional heroines with the story of an intelligent and creative young woman who educates herself through her close friendships with men and women. Darker and more overtly feminist, The Wrongs of Woman is set in an insane asylum, where a young woman has been wrongly imprisoned by her husband. By presenting the novellas in light of such texts as Wollstonecraft’s letters, her polemical and educational prose, similar works by other feminists and political reformists, the literature of sentiment, and contemporary medical texts, this edition encourages an appreciation of the complexity and sophistication of Wollstonecraft’s writing goals as a radical feminist in the 1790s.

Novel by the pioneering champion of women's rights (and the mother of Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein). According to Wikipedia: "Maria: or, The Wrongs of Woman is the 18th century British feminist Mary Wollstonecraft's unfinished novelistic sequel to her revolutionary political treatise A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792). The Wrongs of Woman was published posthumously in 1798 by her husband, William Godwin, and is often considered her most radical feminist work. Wollstonecraft's philosophical and gothicpatriarchal institution of marriage in eighteenth-century Britain and the legal system that protected it. However, the heroine's inability to relinquish her romantic fantasies also reveals women's collusion in their oppression through false and damaging sentimentalism. The novel pioneered the celebration of female sexuality and cross-class identification between women. Such themes, coupled with the publication of Godwin's scandalous Memoirs of Wollstonecraft's life, made the novel unpopular at the time it was published.Twentieth-century feminist critics embraced the work, integrating it into the history of the novel and feminist discourse. It is most often viewed as a fictionalized popularization of the Rights of Woman, as an extension of Wollstonecraft's feminist arguments in Rights of Woman, and as autobiographical." novel revolves around the story of a woman imprisoned in an insane asylum by her husband. It focuses on the societal rather than the individual "wrongs of woman" and criticizes what Wollstonecraft viewed as autobiographical."

From Longman's Cultural Editions series, Wollstonecraft, edited by Anne K. Mellor and Noelle Chao, for the first time pairs Wollstonecraft's feminist tract, the first in English letters, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, with her unfinished novel, The Wrongs of Woman, or Maria. By putting tract and novel together, this text presents a far richer and more complex discussion of Wollstonecraft's political and literary opinions. A wealth of cultural contexts bearing on the “wrongs” of woman (their social and political oppression) in the 18th century and on the development of the Gothic and realist novel further clarify these two texts. Handsomely produced and affordably priced, the Longman Cultural Editions series presents classic works in provocative and illuminating contexts-cultural, critical, and literary. Each Cultural Edition consists of the complete text of an important literary work, reliably edited, headed by an inviting introduction, and supplemented by helpful annotations; a table of dates to track its composition, publication, and public reception in relation to biographical, cultural and historical events; and a guide for further inquiry and study.

Pioneers in life writing, Mary Wollstonecraft, author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), and Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein (1818 ), are now widely regarded as two of the leading writers of the Romantic period. They are both responsible for opening up new possibilities for women in genres traditionally dominated by men. This volume brings together essays on Wollstonecraft’s and Shelley’s life writing by some of the most prominent scholars in Canada, Australia, and the United States. It also includes a full-length play by award-winning Canadian playwright Rose Scollard. Together, the essays and the play explore the connections between mother and daughter, between writing and life, and between criticism and creation. They offer a new understanding of two important writers, of a literary period, and of emergent modes of life writing. Essayists include Judith Barbour, Betty T. Bennett, Anne K. Mellor, Charles E. Robinson, Eleanor Ty, and Lisa Vargo. Among the works discussed are Wollstonecraft’s Vindication, Letters from Norway, and Maria; or, The Wrongs of Woman; William Godwin’s Memoirs of Wollstonecraft; and Shelley’s Frankenstein, The Last Man, Ladore, and Rambles in Germany and Italy.

El fulgurante éxito internacional de "Frankenstein" ha eclipsado en parte la meritoria obra de Mary Shelley, quien además no pudo publicar en vida su obra maestra "Mathilda", que tuvo que esperar ciento cuarenta años para ver la luz. Un relato sin duda marcadamente biográfico, que cuenta el lado oscuro de la historia de la propia escritora, fiel a la teoría romántica de que el mejor modo de expresar las pasiones es experimentarlas. Novela melancólica por antonomasia (lluvia, desesperación, sueños, muerte, pasiones, soledad en un brezal yermo), "Mathilda" explora la naturaleza del pesar, el poder del amor, la destrucción como consecuencia de desafiar a la naturaleza, el perverso poder del deseo.

Mary Wollstonecraft, often described as the first major feminist, is remembered principally as the author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), and there has been a tendency to view her most famous work in isolation. Yet Wollstonecraft's pronouncements about women grew out of her reflections about men, and her views on the female sex constituted an integral part of a wider moral and political critique of her times which she first fully formulated in A Vindication of the Rights of Men (1790). Written as a reply to Edmund Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France (1790), this is an important text in its own right as well as a necessary tool for understanding Wollstonecraft's later work. This edition brings the two texts together and also includes Hints, the notes which Wollstonecraft made towards a second, never completed, volume of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman.

Since the publication of her Vindication of the Rights of Woman in 1792, Mary Wollstonecraft has been justly hailed as a pioneer of feminist thought in the English-speaking world. Yet Wollstonecraft is a much more fascinating figure, her life far richer, and the impact of that life on her ideas a great deal stronger, than an account of one work alone can convey. This study provides an absorbing introduction to the range and diversity of Wollstonecraft's writing. What is revealed is a writer who challenged the prejudices of her day, both in her work and in her life. Drawing on recent feminist and literary scholarship, Jane Moore plots the tensions in Wollstonecraft's argument for female independence, mapping her ambivalence about sexual matters onto her quest for love. The debates that Mary Wollstonecraft aroused have lost none of their power to excite controversy in our time.

Mary Shelley (née Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, often known as Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley) was a British novelist, short story writer, dramatist, essayist, biographer, travel writer, and editor of the works of her husband, Romantic poet and philosopher Percy Bysshe Shelley. She was the daughter of the political philosopher William Godwin and the writer, philosopher, and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft. Mary Shelley was taken seriously as a writer in her own lifetime, though reviewers often missed the political edge to her novels. After her death, however, she was chiefly remembered only as the wife of Percy Bysshe Shelley and as the author of Frankenstein. It was not until 1989, when Emily Sunstein published her prizewinning biography Mary Shelley: Romance and Reality, that a full-length scholarly biography analyzing all of Shelley's letters, journals, and works within their historical context was published. The well-meaning attempts of Mary Shelley's son and daughter-in-law to "Victorianise" her memory through the censoring of letters and biographical material contributed to a perception of Mary Shelley as a more conventional, less reformist figure than her works suggest. Her own timid omissions from Percy Shelley's works and her quiet avoidance of public controversy in the later years of her life added to this impression. The eclipse of Mary Shelley's reputation as a novelist and biographer meant that, until the last thirty years, most of her works remained out of print, obstructing a larger view of her achievement. She was seen as a one-novel author, if that. In recent decades, however, the republication of almost all her writings has stimulated a new recognition of its value. Her voracious reading habits and intensive study, revealed in her journals and letters and reflected in her works, is now better appreciated. Shelley's recognition of herself as an author has also been recognized; after Percy's death, she wrote about her authorial ambitions: "I think that I can maintain myself, and there is something inspiriting in the idea". Scholars now consider Mary Shelley to be a major Romantic figure, significant for her literary achievement and her political voice as a woman and a liberal.

Mary Wollstonecraft wrote Vindication of the Rights of Woman in response to public debate and discussion about the education of women. She argues that women should be educated according to their station, and that they could be more than mere wives to their husbands and educators to their children. The text is one of the earliest works of feminist philosophy.

One of the earliest works of protofeminist thought, this startling prescient 1792 book is the first published argument advocating for the societal elevation of women as the intellectual and emotional equals of men. Written against the background of the French Revolution--the debate over which caused an uproar in both England and France--and the 1791 statement by French diplomat Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord to the French National Assembly that women should be educated only in domestic matters, this is a furious reprimand of the prevailing attitudes of late-18th-century Europe that women should be docile, virtuous, and untroubled by any matters beyond the home. Well received in its day and still an important resource for anyone wishing to understand the history of feminism, this extended essay demolishes the sexual double standard of the day, offers a rational defense for the education of girls, and demands merely that women be treated as people. British writer and educator MARY WOLLSTONECRAFT (1759-1797), the mother of Frankenstein author Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, espoused her then-radical feminist and liberal philosophies in other such works as Thoughts on the Education of Daughters (1787) and History and Moral View of the Origins and Progress of the French Revolution (1793).

William Godwin (1756-1836), padre de Mary Shelley, escribió abundantes ensayos sobre política, donde fue exponiendo su pensamiento de carácter anarquista -además de participar activamente en movimientos radicales de la época-, como su célebre Investigación sobre la Justicia Política. Caleb Williams surgió precisamente del estado mental en que le sumió la redacción de este ensayo. Las «aventuras» de Caleb Williams es una oscura y envolvente novela sobre la culpabilidad, la curiosidad malsana, el acoso y la persecución obsesiva. La primera parte describe la decadencia del noble Falkland, cuyo honor y reputación (los dos valores que orientan su vida) quedan en entredicho al cernirse sobre él la sospecha de un crimen infame. Su criado Caleb Williams, guiado por una curiosidad morbosa, cree haber descubierto la culpabilidad indudable de su amo y señor Falkland. Es entonces cuando se desata sobre el criado una persecución y acoso implacables. Las leyes, tal como aparecen en la obra, son esencialmente corruptas e instrumento de opresión de los poderosos sobre los débiles y no son más que el arma de la que se sirve la tiranía humana, al menos en el mundo de las cosas como son.

Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797) was an eighteenthcentury British writer, philosopher, and feminist. During her brief career, she wrote novels, treatises, a travel narrative, a history of the French Revolution, a conduct book, and a children's book. Wollstonecraft is best known for A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), in which she argues that women are not naturally inferior to men, but appear to be only because they lack education. She suggests that both men and women should be treated as rational beings and imagines a social order founded on reason. The majority of her early productions centre around the topic of education; she assembled an anthology of literary extracts "for the improvement of young women" entitled The Female Reader. Her other works include Thoughts on the Education of Daughters (1787), Mary: A Fiction (1788), Original Stories from Real Life (1791), Letters on Sweden, Norway, and Denmark (1796), Maria; or, The Wrongs of Woman (1798), and Posthumous Works of the Author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1798).

Crítica Tres novelas románticas con la mujer como eje. Las tres novelas que Nórdica reúne en un volumen sin precedentes: la identidad femenina, vista desde una perspectiva subjetiva, pero también social e inscrita en un marco romántico. Es inevitable no leer estas novelas, sólo discretas en lo literario, sin atender a las corresponden- cias entre ellas con las vidas de sus res- pectivas autoras, dos desdichadas heroí- nas que desprenden un halo de grandeza trágica. Ignacio F. Garmendia Sinopsis Este libro reúne por primera vez tres apasionadas novelas de «la extraordinaria pareja» formada por una madre y su hija: Mary Wollstonecraft y Mary Shelley, precedidas de una valiosa introducción de Janet Todd, especialista en la obra de Mary Wollstonecraft y Jane Austen. El núcleo de las tres obras es la exploración en torno a la identidad y a la subjetividad femeninas, atrapadas en el «círculo mágico» de la feminidad convencional y de la claustrofóbica unidad familiar. Tanto Mary como Mathilda son obras pasionales e introspectivas. Maria es una novela con más conciencia social que destaca por la manera en que pasa de la experiencia inmediata de la autora a mostrar los complejos infortunios de mujeres de diferentes clases. Está considerada el texto feminista más radical de la Wollstonecraft y supone una extensión de su famosa Vindicación de los derechos de la mujer. Las dos escritoras, especialmente Mary Shelley (autora de Frankenstein), dotan a sus novelas de un marcado carácter autobiográfico. Sus páginas nos llevan a lo mejor del Romanticismo inglés: en ellas nos encontraremos con la Naturaleza, con relaciones apasionadas y con esa pulsión suicida tan propia de la época.

Tauchert's book revisits the work of feminist icon Mary Wollstonecraft to offer new readings which are both astute and adventurous. It demands that we leave behind the baggage of years of argument over whether or not Wollstonecraft is feminist and instead offers a Wollstonecraft whose work intervenes in the formation of 'womanhood', and as such is both valuable and timely. Giving a comprehensive account of her work, Tauchert makes a significant addition to current theories of feminine writing through her analysis of Wollstonecraft's techniques.
