Podrobný popis:

Pioneering feminist Mary Wollstonecraft's Letters written during a short residence in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark was her most popular book during her lifetime. Part travel book, part personal, social, and political memoir, her response to nature and society contains some of her most brilliant writing and gives us a genuine insight into her personality. Wide-ranging Introduction considers Wollstonecraft's life, the unusual reason for her trip, the qualities of the work and its later influence. Fascinating and contextualizing appendices include her lover's Imlay's commission to recover his lost silver, her recently discovered letter to 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. Includes map. 'If ever there was a book calculated to make a man in love with its author, this appears to me to be the book.' William Godwin, the author's future husband, was not alone in admiring Letters written during a short residence in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark, Wollstonecraft's most popular book during her lifetime. Not easy 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 travelled across the dramatic landscape and wrote sublime descriptions of the natural world, and the events and people she encountered. What emerges most vividly is Wollstonecraft's courage and ability to look beyond her own suffering to the turmoil around her in revolutionary Europe, and a better future. This edition includes further material on the silver ship, Wollstonecraft's personal letters to Imlay during her trip, an extract from Godwin's memoir, and a selection of contemporary reviews.
