ROMANTIC OUTLAWS:

CHARLOTTE GORDON    Book Number: 82590    Product format: Hardback

Two 'Mary's, both rule breakers, both fearless writers, and a mother and daughter whose names are forever emblazoned in history. When 'no one has ever examined their lives in one book - until now', Gordon powerfully sets out to charter from the 'early years' of Wollstonecraft, to Shelley's 'ramblings'. Despite Wollstonecraft dying very shortly after giving birth to Shelley, a bond was created between the two as Shelley always insisted that she was meant to follow in the footsteps of her mother. Yet the biography gives insight into the women's works as well as their lives as Gordon studies their legacy, whether discussing the addition of the character Robert Walton to Shelley's novel Frankenstein, or Wollstonecraft's Rights of Women as it took its influence from the likes of Locke, Rousseau, and Adam Smith. This is a detailed journey through these womens' lives whether it was Wollstonecraft trying to stay out of prison for commenting on the injustices women faced, or struggling with personal grief after the death of her William. Accompanied by an in depth index, bibliography and notes, this is a tale of two extraordinary women who were forever bound but never together. For anyone interested in these literary icons or the battle cries of these fascinating women. Roughcut pages, photos, 649pp.
