In this work, Robinson urges her female contemporaries to throw off the "glittering shackles" of custom and to claim their rightful places as the social and intellectual equals of men." "Separately published in the same year, Robinson's novel The Natural Daughter follows the story of Martha Morley, who defies her husband's authority, adopts a found infant, is barred from her husband's estate and is driven to seek work as an actress and author. The novel implicitly links and critiques domestic tyrants in England and Jacobin tyrants in France." "This edition also includes: other writings by Mary Robinson (tributes, and an excerpt from The Progress of Liberty); writings by contemporaries on women, society, and revolution; and contemporary reviews of both works."--Jacket+-+618766600620216ocn744843203file18000.79Robinson, MaryThe mistletoe. --- A Christmas tale.

Amelia Opie, a member of the fashionable literary society and later a Quaker, included among her friends Sydney Smith, Byron, and Scott, and reputedly refused Godwin's marriage proposal out of admiration for Mary Wollstonecraft. Jane West, who tended her household and dairy while writing prolifically to support her children, was in direct opposition to the radically feminist ideas preceding her. These authors, each from different ideological and social backgrounds, all grappled with a desire for empowerment. Writing in an atmosphere hardened towards reform in response to the French revolution's upheavals, these women focus their narratives on typically feminine attributes - docility, maternal feeling, heightened sensibility (that key word of the period). That focus invests these attributes with new meaning, making supposed female weaknesses potentially active forces for social change."--BOOK JACKET+-+27189575353245479ocn056880286book20040.28Byrne, PaulaPerdita : the literary, theatrical, scandalous life of Mary RobinsonBiographyOne of the most flamboyant free spirits of the late eighteenth century, darling of the London stage, mistress to the most powerful men in England, feminist thinker, and bestselling author, described by Samuel Taylor Coleridge as "a woman of undoubted genius," Mary Robinson led a life that was marked by reversals of fortune. Abandoned by her merchant father, Mary was married at 15. Her husband landed the couple and their baby in debtors' prison, where she wrote her first book of poetry. On her release, she rose to become one of the London theater's most alluring actresses. The Prince of Wales fell madly in love with her, and she later used his love letters as blackmail. After being struck down by paralysis, apparently following a miscarriage, she remade herself yet again, this time as a popular writer admired by the leading intellectuals of the day+-+44252476354016ocn001555678book19570.39Bass, Robert DThe green dragoon; the lives of Banastre Tarleton and Mary Robinson3938ocn056645569book20040.21Byrne, PaulaPerdita : the life of Mary RobinsonBiography+-+35191625553243371ocn035243540book19970.77Pascoe, JudithRomantic theatricality : gender, poetry, and spectatorshipHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcIn a significant reinterpretation of early romanticism, Judith Pascoe shows how English literary culture in the 1790s came to be shaped by the theater and by the public's fascination with it. Pascoe focus on several intriguing historical occurrences of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, emphasizing how writers in all areas of public life relied on theatrical modes of self-representation. Pascoe adduces the theatrical posturing of the Della Cruscan poets, the staginess of the Marie Antoinette depicted in women's poetry, and the histrionic maneuverings of participants in the 1794 treason trials. Such public events as the trials also linked the newly powerful role of female theatrical spectator to that of political spectator. New forms of self-representation and dramatization arose as a result of that synthesis. Although its focus is on the substantial debt that romantic literature owes women writers, Romantic Theatrically also provides a new lens for viewing the creative endeavors of male romantic writers. Thus Pascoe documents William Wordsworth's strategic participation in the theatricality of early romantic culture+-+09588965353293ocn145146419book20070.12Elyot, AmandaAll for love : the scandalous life and times of royal mistress Mary RobinsonFictionMary Robinson's talent, beauty, and drive led her from debtors' prison to the glamour and scandal of the London stage, where a star was born--and sold as society's darling, envied by women, and desired by men.

Born in Bristol in 1758, she moved to London with her family at a young age and was trained by Garrick for the theatre. After a royal command performance as Perdita in 'The Winter's Tale', she was hotly pursued by George, the 17yearold Prince of Wales, and she became his first mistress.
