Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin Reviews
I loved this book not so much because of the author’s skills, but because of the subject matter. I was introduced to Mary Wollstonecraft a few months ago when I read “A Vindication of the Rights of Women”. I found that book heartbreaking in the mildness of its requests for women to be treated with a modicum of dignity. Now, reading this biography during the same time that I participated in the Women’s March on Washington has truly fired my admiration for Mary Wollstonecraft. Any modern woman, reading her biography, cannot help but ask herself, “What would I have done in her situation? How would I have struggled against the incredible prejudice and hardship that she faced?” I doubt that many of us would have been as strong as Wollstonecraft.Reading this outdated biography made me want to read a newer, more complete biography. Imagine my joy when I found out that Claire Tomalin, one of my favorite biographers, has written a biography of Mary Wollstonecraft. That book is going right to the top of my “to-read” list.
