Adriana Craciun demonstrates how portrayals of femmes fatales or fatal women played an important role in the development of Romantic women's poetic identities and informed their exploration of issues surrounding the body, sexuality and politics.

Zofloya or, The Moor: a romance of the fifteenth century by Charlotte Dacre( file )
3 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 861 libraries worldwide
"'Few venture as thou hast in the alarming paths of sin.' This is the final judgement of Satan on Victoria di Loredani, the heroine of Zofloya, or The Moor (1806), a tale of lust, betrayal, and multiple murder set in Venice in the last days of the fifteenth century. The novel follows Victoria's progress from spoilt daughter of indulgent aristocrats, through a period of abuse and captivity, to a career of deepening criminality conducted under Satan's watchful eye. Charlotte Dacre's narrative deftly displays her heroine's movement from the vitalized position of Ann Radcliffe's heroines to a fully conscious commitment to vice that goes beyond that of 'Monk' Lewis's deluded Ambrosio. The novel's most daring aspect is its depiction of Victoria's intense sexual attraction to her Moorish servant Zofloya that transgresses taboos both of class and race. A minor scandal on its first publication, and a significant influence on Byron and Shelley, Zofloya has been unduly neglected. Contradicting idealized stereotypes of women's writing, the novel's portrait of indulged desire, gratuitous cruelty, and monumental self-absorption retains considerable power to disturb. The introduction to this edition, the first for nearly 200 years, examines why Zofloya deserves to be read alongside established Gothic classics as the highly original work of an intriguing and unconventional writer."--Publisher's description

8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 345 libraries worldwide
"This new volume in the series Palgrave Studies in the Enlightenment, Romanticism and Cultures of Print illuminates the significant extent to which British women writers cultivated a radicalized cosmopolitanism through their engagement with French revolutionary politics. British women were drawn to France for both its ancient regime associations as 'the paradise of lady wits' (to quote Fanny Burney), and its revolutionary politics that extended across gender and national lines

Vindication of the rights of woman with strictures on political and moral subjects by Mary Wollstonecraft( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"This volume brings together the major political writings of Mary Wollstonecraft as they appeared in the revolutionary 1790s." "It traces her passionate and indignant response to the excitement of the early days of the French Revolution and then her uneasiness at its later bloody phase. It reveals her developing understanding of women's involvement in a nation's political and social life and her growing awareness of the relationship between politics and economics, political institutions and the individual." "In personal terms, the works show her struggling with a belief in the perfectibility of human nature through rational education, a doctrine that appeared weaker to her under the onslaught of her own miserable experience and of the revolutionary massacres."--Jacket
