649 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w illustrations. "This groundbreaking dual biography brings to life a pioneering English feminist and the daughter she never knew. Mary Wollstonecraft and Mary Shelley have each been the subject of numerous biographies, yet no one has ever examined their lives in one book - until now. Charlotte Gordon reunites the trailblazing author who wrote 'A Vindication of the Rights of Women' and the Romantic visionary who gave the world 'Frankenstein' - two courageous women who should have shared their lives, but instead shared a powerful literary and feminist legacy. Taking readers on a vivid journey across revolutionary France and Victorian England, (Gordon) seamlessly weaves the lives of her two protagonists in alternating chapters, creating a book that reads like a richly textured historical novel. She also paints unforgettable portraits of the men in their lives, including the mercurial genius Percy Shelley, the unbridled libertine Lord Byron, and the brilliant radical William Godwin. (R)eveals the defiant, creative lives of this daring mother-daughter pair who refused to be confined by the rigid conventions of their era." Bump/wrinkling and a very small tear at the top of the spine, very small remainder dot on the bottom of the text block. Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling, wrinkling and creasing at the top of the spine, minor rubbing.
