12 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning with Hannah More, Mellor argues that women writers, who were too often dismissed as conservative or retrogressive, instead promoted a revolution in cultural mores. She discusses writers as diverse as Elizabeth Inchbald, Hannah Cowley, and Joanna Baillie: Charlotte Smith, Anna Barbauld, and Lucy Aikin; Mary Wollstonecraft, Charlotte Reeve, and Anna Seward; and concludes with extended analyses of Charlotte Smith's Desmond and Jane Austen's Persuasion. She thus documents women writers' full participation in that very discursive public sphere which Habermas so famously restricted to men of property."--Jacket
The annotated Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Remarkably, a nineteen-year-old, writing her first novel, penned a tale that combines tragedy, morality, social commentary, and a thoughtful examination of the very nature of knowledge,' writes ... author Leslie S. Klinger in his foreword to The New Annotated Frankenstein. Despite its undeniable status as one of the most influential works of fiction ever written, Mary Shelley's novel is often reductively dismissed as the wellspring for tacky monster films or as a cautionary tale about experimental science gone haywire. Now, two centuries after the first publication of Frankenstein, Klinger revives Shelley's gothic masterpiece by reproducing her original text with the most lavishly illustrated and comprehensively annotated edition to date. Featuring over 200 illustrations and nearly 1,000 annotations, this sumptuous volume recaptures Shelley's early nineteenth-century world with historical precision and imaginative breadth, tracing the social and political roots of the author's revolutionary brand of Romanticism. Braiding together decades of scholarship with his own keen insights, Klinger recounts Frankenstein's indelible contributions to the realms of science fiction, feminist theory, and modern intellectual history--not to mention film history and popular culture. The result of Klinger's exhaustive research is a multifaceted portrait of one of Western literature's most divinely gifted prodigies, a young novelist who defied her era's restrictions on female ambitions by independently supporting herself and her children as a writer and editor. Born in a world of men in the midst of a political and an emerging industrial revolution, Shelley crafted a horror story that, beyond its incisive commentary on her own milieu, is widely recognized as the first work of science fiction. The daughter of a pioneering feminist and an Enlightenment philosopher, Shelley lived and wrote at the center of British Romanticism, the 'exuberant, young movement' that rebelled against tradition and reason and 'with a rebellious scream gave birth to a world of gods and monsters' (Guillermo del Toro). Following his best-selling The New Annotated H. P. Lovecraft and The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes, Klinger not only considers Shelley's original 1818 text but, for the first time in any annotated volume, traces the effects of her significant revisions in the 1823 and 1831 editions. With an afterword by renowned literary scholar Anne K. Mellor, The New Annotated Frankenstein celebrates the prescient genius and undying legacy of the world's 'first truly modern myth.' "--Jacket

Mary, a fiction and the wrongs of woman by Mary Wollstonecraft( Book )

6 editions published between 1975 and 1994 in English and held by 153 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."--Page 4 of cover

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein by Kenneth Branagh( Visual )

5 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Shelleys and Byron wiled away part of a rainy summer in Switzerland reading and writing ghost stories; Frankenstein was Mary Shelley's contribution. But Frankenstein is more than a great ghost story. Its theme-- that we do not know the monsters our minds can create-- is perhaps even more valid today. The program contains clips from the Boris Karloff film, the prototype of movie monsters, and authors Anne Rice and Ann Mellor add their insights into this book
