Memoirs of the author of A vindication of the rights of woman by William Godwin( Book )

2 editions published in 1798 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Godwin's memoir of his wife, Mary Wollstonecraft, marks a transition in Godwin's philosophical development from extreme rationalism to the recognition of the moral importance of feeling and sympathy that was to energize his later writings. Memoirs also belongs to a tradition of biographical writing that sought to transform the consciousness of readers by using individual history as an agent of historical change. Written during the weeks following Wollstonecraft's early death, Memoirs provides an interpretation of the relations between Wollstonecraft's writings and her personal history, a candid account of her various relationships, and a vindication of her egalitarian intimacy with Godwin. This modern, scholarly edition, geared for student use, includes a wide range of primary sources, together with excerpts from Godwin's other writings and from his biographical models."--Jacket

St. Leon; a tale of the sixteenth century by William Godwin( Book )

1 edition published in 1799 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

St Leon (1799), Godwin's second novel, is a work of challenging ambition. Like his first, Caleb Williams (1794), it is a confessional tale of obsession and spiralling pursuit. In St Leon the emphasis is on the individual's powerlessness in the face of momentous historical change. Set during the Protestant Reformation, St Leon tells the harrowing tale of an exiled French aristocrat who is given the secrets of the philosopher's stone and the elixir of life. His attempts to use these gifts to benefit humanity lead only to disaster. Plunged into self-destructive isolation, he wanders through the centres of European religious controversy, arousing fascination, suspicion, and social unrest wherever he goes. The text of this first paperback edition is based on the 'Bentley's Standard Novels' edition of 1831
