Mary, a fiction and the wrongs of woman by Mary Wollstonecraft( Book )
45 editions published between 1799 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,061 libraries worldwide
Mary Wollstonecraft is best known for her pioneering views on the rights of women to share equal rights and opportunities with men. They are expressed here in two novels in which heroines have to rely on their own resources to establish their independence and intellectual development. Strongly autobiographical, both novels powerfully complement Wollstonecraft's non-fictional writing, inspired by the French Revolution and the social upheavals that followed. New to this edition is a completely rewritten introduction that incorporates the latest scholarship and features a consideration of the social formation of Wollstonecraft as a Revolutionary feminist and her literary-political career, as well as a critical account of the two novels. A new bibliography includes all the latest critical writing on Wollstonecraft, while heavily revised notes link her fiction to her extensive reading, her other writings and major events and issues of the day. In addition, the text has been completely reset, making it easier on the eyes. It is by far the highest quality edition available, and a great choice for readers interested in pre-Victorian literature and feminist history. - Publisher
A vindication of the rights of men ; with A vindication of the rights of woman, and Hints by Mary Wollstonecraft( Book )
49 editions published between 1929 and 2009 in English and held by 1,230 libraries worldwide
"Mary Wollstonecraft, often described as the first major feminist, is remembered principally as the author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), and there has been a tendency to view her most famous work in isolation. Yet Wollstonecraft's pronouncements about women grew out of her reflections about men, and her views on the female sex constituted an integral part of a wider moral and political critique of her times which she first fully formulated in A Vindication of the Rights of Men (1790). Written as a reply to Edmund Burke's Reflections on the Revolution of France (1790), this is an important text in its own right as well as a necessary tool for understanding Wollstonecraft's later work. This edition brings the two texts together and also includes Hints, the notes which Wollstonecraft made towards a second, never completed, volume of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman."--Jacket
A Wollstonecraft anthology by Mary Wollstonecraft( Book )
8 editions published between 1977 and 1990 in English and held by 1,023 libraries worldwide
Mary Wollstonecraft is widely recognized as a social and political thinker of major significance and as one of the most important and influential of the early feminists. Some of her works, such as "A Vindication of the Rights of Woman," have become central texts of feminist thought. Written in the eighteenth century, her social commentary challenged the other eminent thinkers of the day, including Edmund Burke and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and confronted the major events of the period, such as the French Revolution. Wollstonecraft was a persuasive writer and thinker who never felt compelled to separate her female experience from her writing. -- Back cover
Collected letters of Mary Wollstonecraft by Mary Wollstonecraft( Book )
11 editions published between 1979 and 2004 in English and held by 814 libraries worldwide
"Mary Wollstonecraft was one of the most distinctive letter writers of the eighteenth century. She talked and thought on paper: her letters were a large part of the drama of her life. In them we see her grow from an awkward child of fourteen into the pioneering feminist and author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, and finally into the woman of thirty-eight facing death in childbirth." "This edition contains the complete correspondence of Mary Wollstonecraft, including a recently discovered interchange with the historian Catherine Macaulary and the only known fragments of letters to the Swiss artist Fuseli, with whom Wollstonecraft had a passionate friendship."--Jacket

Letters written during a short residence in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark by Mary Wollstonecraft( Book )
82 editions published between 1769 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 547 libraries worldwide
"Wollstonecraft's Letters Written in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark is a deeply personal travel narrative. The twenty-five letters cover a wide range of topics, from sociological reflections on Scandinavia and its peoples to philosophical questions regarding identity to musings on her relationship with Imlay (although he is not referred to by name in the text). Using the rhetoric of the sublime, Wollstonecraft explores the relationship between the self and society. Reflecting the strong influence of Rousseau, Letters Written in Sweden shares the themes of the French philosopher's Reveries of a Solitary Walker (1782): "the search for the source of human happiness, the stoic rejection of material goods, the ecstatic embrace of nature, and the essential role of sentiment in understanding". While Rousseau ultimately rejects society, however, Wollstonecraft celebrates domestic scenes and industrial progress in her text."--Wikipedia
