Editorial Reviews

Review

"This study should be a model for intellectual biography; it is the most exciting and provocative piece of scholarship this reader has ever reviewed." The Historian, Melinda Zook, Purdue University

"Mary Wollstonecraft and the Feminist Imagination should appeal to a wide variety of readers...the feminist paradoxes Taylor highlights in this volume should continue to provoke discussion." History

"Barbara Taylor does such a winning job of revitalising Mary Wollstonecraft that readers of this book may well find themselves wanting to turn or return to Wollstonecraft's own writings." London Review of Books

"What Taylor gives us is not only a highly insightful reading of Wollstonecraft, but also an exemplary piece of feminist scholarship." H-WOMEN

insightful reading of Wollstonecraft, but also an exemplary piece of feminist scholarship." H-WOMEN

"Taylor's sensitive study is the first scholarly treatment of Wollstonecraft to do justice to the feminist historical context. By giving careful attention to the role that religion played in Wollstonecraft's work, Taylor opens a new chapter in feminist studies. By taking Wollstonecraft's own paradoxes seriously, Taylor provides a model for combining psychoanalytic theory and historical rigor. This book is required reading for all feminists and sets the standard for future scholarship on this important writer." Mary Poovey, New York University

"The best study to date of one of the eighteenth-century's most inspired, most difficult, and most radical figures...written with breadth and passion and vision, it typifies the best qualities of its subject and it will surely be the authoritative bok on Wollstonecraft for years to come." Albion

Book Description

In the two centuries since Mary Wollstonecraft published A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, she has become an icon of modern feminism: a stature that has paradoxically obscured her real historic significance. Barbara Taylor develops an alternative reading of her as a writer steeped in the utopianism of Britain's radical Enlightenment. Drawing on all Wollstonecraft's works, and locating them in a vividly detailed account of her intellectual world and troubled personal history, Taylor provides a compelling portrait of this fascinating and profoundly influential thinker.
