Revolutionary feminism : the mind and career of Mary Wollstonecraft by Gary Kelly( Book )

32 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Revolutionary feminism grew out of the cultural revolution that founded the modern state in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. That cultural revolution responded to the revolution in France, and at the center of both revolutions was the question of the rights and duties of women. Mary Wollstonecraft's mind and career were shaped in response to these revolutions, leading her to formulate a feminism for her time--revolutionary feminism. This book describes the growth of Wollstonecraft's mind and career, and examines all her writings as experiments in revolutionizing writing in terms of her revolutionary feminism
Mary, a fiction and the wrongs of woman by Mary Wollstonecraft( Book )

46 editions published between 1976 and 2009 in English and held by 574 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
Women, writing, and revolution, 1790-1827 by Gary Kelly( Book )

22 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in English and Italian and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The French Revolution stirred a bitter debate in Britain concerning the nature of civil society and the political nation. This is an original and lively study of the efforts of contemporary women writers to base a reformed state and national culture on virtues and domains traditionally conceded to women. The pre-Revolutionary call for the feminization of culture acquired new and controversial meaning during the Revolution debate with the claims of Mary Wollstonecraft and others for intellectual, vocational, sexual, and even political equality with men. But women writers of the period were faced with a literary discourse that assigned learned, sublime, and controversial genres, and public and political themes, to men. Women writers therefore undertook bold literary experiments that were derided and suppressed in their time, and which are still misunderstood. Gary Kelly investigates this hitherto neglected achievement by combining a wide survey of women's writing in its historical context with detailed analyses of three leading women writers: Helen Maria Williams, the eyewitness to the Revolution most widely read in Britain; the determined feminist and self-styled 'female philosopher' Mary Hays; and Elizabeth Hamilton, relentless 'feminizer' of supposedly 'masculine' discourse, from satire to social reform and from classics to theology
Bluestocking feminism : writings of the Bluestocking Circle, 1738-1785 by Sarah Robinson Scott( Book )

61 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eighteenth-century Bluestocking women were, on the whole, an upper-class and politically and socially conservative group. For this reason, their writings have been largely neglected in feminist and literary history. In recent decades, however, feminist scholarship and criticism has retrieved the Bluestocking women from their marginal position in eighteenth-century literature. This work collects the principal writings of these women, together with a selection of their letters. Each volume is annotated and all texts are edited and reset. The collection will be of interest to students of eighteenth century history, literature, culture and gender studies
Essays and studies, 1998 : Romanticism and gender by English Association( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume, written by both established and newer critics, take up a range of issues and question assumptions about what Romantic literature is, as well as what its periodic boundaries might be. The essays address problems of the relation between class and gender, imperialism and gender identity, and gender and genre within the period understood as stretching from the 1770s to the late 1820s. Is Romanticism a mode or an historical period? Does it include American poets? Taken as a group, this collection of papers gives a good indication of the roads that students of Romanticism may follow well into the next century. -- Preface

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lydia Huntley Sigourney (1791-1865) was the most widely read and respected pre-Civil War American woman poet in the English-speaking world. In a halfcentury career, Sigourney produced a wide range of poetry and prose envisaging the United States as a new kind of republic with a unique mission in history, one in which women like herself had a central role." "In this Broadview edition, a representative selection of poetry and prose from across her career illustrates Sigourney's national vision and the diversity of forms she used to promote it. In the appendices, letters and documents illustrate her working methods in what she called her "kitchen in Parnassus.""--Jacket
