Mary Wollstonecraft : a revolutionary life by Janet M Todd ( Book )
11 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,491 libraries worldwide
"Mary Wollstonecraft was the first major feminist in England, author of the pioneering Vindication of the Rights of Woman in 1792. This biography argues that her life and letters are her most lasting legacy." "This biography stresses too her tortured relations with her family, arguing that her resentment of her brother, Ned, and his advantages as an adored boy fuelled her intellectual life. It especially relates her involvement with her two sisters, whom she mothered, dominated, and wounded. Because they shared her volatile, depressive, and self-dramatizing temperament and were caught on the edge of Mary's tumultuous life, their letters declare what she herself might have been without her special energy and zest." "This biography, which makes full use of all her writings, also compares her with other women who came into her orbit: the clever, tragic Fanny Blood, so intensely loved and so betrayed, the pretty young Amelia Alderson, who admired and recoiled from the unconventional, and Mary Hays, caught in the same intellectual and sexual dilemmas but without Wollstonecraft's glamour."--BOOK JACKET.

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.
