"The American Gilbert Imlay is known to readers of British Romanticism as the cad who abandoned Mary Wollstonecraft, the founding mother of modern feminism. Few are as well-acquainted with The Emigrants, Imlay's delightful epistolary novel set in the Ohio River Valley of Kentucky, then the American frontier. The Emigrants (1793), one of the first Americna novels, contrasts the rigid political structures of England with the promise of the American West as a socially just utopia. Its sensational love plots also dramatize the plight of women trapped in degrading marriages, frankly advocating relaxed divorce laws."--Back cover

"This engaging volume was pioneering feminist Mary Wollstonecraft's most popular book during her lifetime. Difficult to categorize, it is both an arresting travel book and a moving exploration of her personal and political selves. Wollstonecraft set out for Scandinavia just two weeks after her first suicide attempt, on a mission from the lover whose affections she doubted, to recover his silver on a ship that had gone missing. With her baby daughter and a nursemaid, she traveled across the dramatic landscape and wrote sublime descriptions of the natural world, and the events and people she encountered. Fascinating appendices include Imlay's commission to recover his lost silver, Wollstonecraft's recently discovered letter to the Danish Prime Minister asking for assistance, the private letters she wrote to Imlay during her travels in Scandinavia, a chapter from Godwin's memoir of Wollstonecraft, and a selection of contemporary reviews. About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more."--Publisher's website
