Mary, a fiction and the wrongs of woman by Mary Wollstonecraft ( Book )
43 editions published between 1976 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mary Wollstonecraft is best known for her pioneering views on the rights of women to share equal rights and opportunities with men. They are expressed here in two novels in which heroines have to rely on their own resources to establish their independence and intellectual development. Strongly autobiographical, both novels powerfully complement Wollstonecraft's non-fictional writing, inspired by the French Revolution and the social upheavals that followed. New to this edition is a completely rewritten introduction that incorporates the latest scholarship and features a consideration of the social formation of Wollstonecraft as a Revolutionary feminist and her literary-political career, as well as a critical account of the two novels. A new bibliography includes all the latest critical writing on Wollstonecraft, while heavily revised notes link her fiction to her extensive reading, her other writings and major events and issues of the day. In addition, the text has been completely reset, making it easier on the eyes. It is by far the highest quality edition available, and a great choice for readers interested in pre-Victorian literature and feminist history. - Publisher

A Wollstonecraft anthology by Mary Wollstonecraft ( Book )
14 editions published between 1977 and 1990 in English and held by 1,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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. -- Back cover
Letters written during a short residence in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark by Mary Wollstonecraft ( Book )
87 editions published between 1769 and 2009 in English and held by 1,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This engaging volume was pioneering feminist Mary Wollstonecraft's most popular book during her lifetime. Difficult to categorize, it is both an arresting travel book and a moving exploration of her personal and political selves. Wollstonecraft set out for Scandinavia just two weeks after her first suicide attempt, on a mission from the lover whose affections she doubted, to recover his silver on a ship that had gone missing. With her baby daughter and a nursemaid, she traveled across the dramatic landscape and wrote sublime descriptions of the natural world, and the events and people she encountered. Fascinating appendices include Imlay's commission to recover his lost silver, Wollstonecraft's recently discovered letter to the Danish Prime Minister asking for assistance, the private letters she wrote to Imlay during her travels in Scandinavia, a chapter from Godwin's memoir of Wollstonecraft, and a selection of contemporary reviews
Collected letters of Mary Wollstonecraft by Mary Wollstonecraft ( Book )
17 editions published between 1979 and 2004 in English and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Mary Wollstonecraft was one of the most distinctive letter writers of the eighteenth century. She talked and thought on paper: her letters were a large part of the drama of her life. In them we see her grow from an awkward child of fourteen into the pioneering feminist and author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, and finally into the woman of thirty-eight facing death in childbirth." "This edition contains the complete correspondence of Mary Wollstonecraft, including a recently discovered interchange with the historian Catherine Macaulay and the only known fragments of letters to the Swiss artist Fuseli, with whom Wollstonecraft had a passionate friendship."--BOOK JACKET

A vindication of the rights of men A vindication of the rights of woman ; An historical and moral view of the French Revolution by Mary Wollstonecraft ( )
10 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume brings together the major political writings of Mary Wollstonecraft as they appeared in the revolutionary 1790s." "It traces her passionate and indignant response to the excitement of the early days of the French Revolution and then her uneasiness at its later bloody phase. It reveals her developing understanding of women's involvement in a nation's political and social life and her growing awareness of the relationship between politics and economics, political institutions and the individual." "In personal terms, the works show her struggling with a belief in the perfectibility of human nature through rational education, a doctrine that appeared weaker to her under the onslaught of her own miserable experience and of the revolutionary massacres."--BOOK JACKET
Maria : or, The wrongs of woman by Mary Wollstonecraft ( Book )
13 editions published between 1975 and 1994 in English and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Maria, Wollstonecraft pursues in fictional form themes set forth in A vindication of the rights of woman. Her story of a woman incarcerated in a madhouse by her abusive husband dramatizes the effect of the English marriage laws, which made women virtually the property of their husbands. Left uncompleted at Wollstonecraft's early death, Maria remains a powerful work of propaganda, a unique picture of women's status in eighteenth-century England."--P. [4] of cover
