Mary Wollstonecraft: A Revolutionary Life

Front Cover
Columbia University Press, 2000 - Biography & Autobiography - 516 pages
"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.
