Author:

The Last Man is an apocalyptic science fiction novel by Mary Shelley, which was first published in 1826. The book tells of a future world that has been ravaged by a plague. The novel was harshly reviewed at the time, and was virtually unknown until a scholarly revival beginning in the 1960s. It is notable in part for its semi-­biographical portraits of Romantic figures in Shelley's circle, particularly Shelley's late husband Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron. Mary Shelley (Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin; 30 August 1797 - 1 February 1851) was a British novelist, short story writer, dramatist, essayist, biographer, and travel writer, best known for her Gothic novel Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus (1818). She also edited and promoted the works of her husband, the Romantic poet and philosopher Percy Bysshe Shelley. Her father was the political philosopher William Godwin, and her mother was the philosopher and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft. Until the 1970s, Mary Shelley was known . . .

Author:

Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus, was completed by Mary Shelley at the age of 19. She infused this original novel with Gothic and Romantic elements. Scientist Victor Frankenstein creates a large and powerful creature in the likeness of man, but is disgusted by his own creation and he abandons the being to fend for itself. Spawning generations of horror stories in the genre, Frankenstein is a gruesome warning against playing God and attempting the engineering of life.

Author:

Writing in an age when the call for the rights of man had brought revolution to America and France, Mary Wollstonecraft produced her own declaration of female independence in 1792. Passionate and forthright, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman attacked the prevailing view of docile, decorative femininity, and instead laid out the principles of emancipation: an equal education for girls and boys, an end to prejudice, and for women to become defined by their profession, not their partner. Mary Wollstonecraft's work was received with a mixture of admiration and outrage - Walpole called her 'a hyena in petticoats' - yet it established her as the mother of modern feminism.

Author:

The founder of modern feminism, Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-­1797) was the most famous woman of her era. A brilliant, unconventional rebel vilified for her strikingly modern notions of education, family, work, and personal relationships, she nevertheless strongly influenced political philosophy in Europe and a newborn America. Now acclaimed biographer Lyndall Gordon mounts a spirited defense of this courageous woman whose reputation has suffered over the years by painting a full and vibrant portrait of an extraordinary historical figure who was generations ahead of her time.

pubOne.­info thank you for your continued support and wish to present you this new edition. THE PUBLIC are here presented with the last literary attempt of an author, whose fame has been uncommonly extensive, and whose talents have probably been most admired, by the persons by whom talents are estimated with the greatest accuracy and discrimination. There are few, to whom her writings could in any case have given pleasure, that would have wished that this fragment should have been suppressed, because it is a fragment. There is a sentiment, very dear to minds of taste and imagination, that finds a melancholy delight in contemplating these unfinished productions of genius, these sketches of what, if they had been filled up in a manner adequate to the writer's conception, would perhaps have given a new impulse to the manners of a world.

Author:

When she came back she found Fannys poor parents anxious to go back to Ireland; and as she had been often told that she could earn by writing, she wrote a pamphlet of 162 small pages—”Thoughts on the Education of Daughters”—and got ten pounds for it. This she gave to her friends parents to enable them to go back to their kindred. In all she did there is clear evidence of an ardent, generous, impulsive nature. One day her friend Fanny Blood had repined at the unhappy surroundings in the home she was maintaining for her father and mOther, and longed for a little home of her own to do her work in. The claims made in this little book were in advance of the opinion of that day, but they are claims that have in our day been conceded. They are certainly not revolutionary in the opinion of the world that has become a hundred years older since the book was written. The interest of this book which describes her travel is quickened by a knowledge of the heart-­sorrow that underlies it all. . . .

Author:

'If ever there was a book calculated to make a man in love with its author, this appears to me to be the book.­' Dieses Zitat William Godwins summiert wohl am Besten Mary Wollstonecrafts 1795 verfasste 'Letters Written During a Short Residence in Sweden, Norway and Denmark'. Wollstonecrafts Letters sind dem Genre der Reiseliteratur zuzurechnen, einer für das 18. Jh. durchaus typischen Gattung der Literatur. Dennoch durchbricht sie mehrmals in ihrem Werk die gängigen Konventionen dieses Genres: nicht der oft und gern verwendete Typus des jungen Literaturreisenden wird mitsamt seinem älteren Mentor auf die Reise geschickt, nein, eine junge Frau reist zusammen mit ihrer erst 14 Monate alten Tochter und dem Kindermädchen. Auch die Reiseroute ist eher unüblich, führt nicht durch Europa, sondern durch das dem englischen Lesepublikum noch wenig bekannte Skandinavien. Viele Faktoren sprechen trotzdem für die damalige und noch anhaltende Popularität des Werkes, so dessen Reichweite und . . .
