    This is the very point I aim at I do not wish them women to have power over men but over themselves A Vindication of the Rights of Woman was published in 1792 It is impossible for me to review this work in any traditional sense Yes, there are contradictions in some of Wollstonecraft s arguments Yes, the essay is discursive and meandering at times None of that matters, compared with ...

    First off, a disclaimer that I did not read the third text in this edition, actually an excerpt from An Historical and Moral View of the French Revolution I wanted to give Wollstonecraft s two Vindications a joint rating, though, in order to avoid subtracting a star from the later,famous text because one may as well sooner read A Vindication of the Rights ...

    An enlightening insight into the perspectives of a late 18th Century middle class female thinker There is much here that could be seen to inspire the generations to come, and to stand up for the authority of reason ahead of tradition At the same time there is an intriguing tension between many views that might be considered the norm today, and some that feel very much of their era in their affirmation of a stratified perspective of how the sexes relate to each other What frustrates about the An enli...

    Read A Vindication of the Rights of Woman for EN4363 Romantic Writing and Women I was pleasantly surprised by what an engaging and enlightening read this was when I began this book I expected it to be the sort of text I could appreciate historically, but not entirely enjoy, but for the most part I genuinely enjoyed reading this book I did find that it got bogged down in repetitions at times, but I know this is because Wollstonecraft had very little time to edit this text before it went to Read A Vindication of the Rights of Woman for EN4363 Romantic Writing and Women I was pleasantly surprised by what an engaging and enlightening read this was when I began this book I expected it to be the sort of text I could appreciate historically, but not entirely enjoy, but for the most part I genuinely enjoyed reading this book I did find that it got bogged down in repetitions at times, but I know this is because Wollstonecraft had very little time to edit this text before it went to print Giventime, it could have been a far better structured book that conveyed the same message without needing to repeat the same facts and ideas over and over Ultimately my biggest issue with this book was Wollstonecraft s bizarre ideas on marriage, namely the fact that passion eventually disappeared, leaving the couple with nothing but friendship and their children to unite them While I do believe that fri...

    I feel really bad DNFing this but I am not sure whatI can get out of it Apparently Wollstonecraft wrote this in a hurry, and it shows She sets out most of her points in the introduction and then goes around and around and around making them over and over again The style is slow going, but that s not why I stopped I feel like I have got the message, and I can t bring myself to plough slowly through the rest A Vindication of the Rights of Women is obviously a very important book, and it I feel really bad DNFing this but I am not sure whatI can get out of it Apparently Wollstonecraft wrote this in a hurry, and it shows She sets out most of her points in the introduction and then goes around and around and around making them over and over again The style is slow going, but that s not why I stopped I feel like I have got the message, and I can t bring myself to plough slowly through the rest A Vindication of the Rights of Women is obviously a very important book, and it is righ...

    Excellently written book full of passion While Wollstonecraft was regarded as aenthusiastic writer and less of a valid political critic it is evident that her apt view and reasoning were a valueable commodity to her throughout the French Revolution as a foreign observer and during the political upheaval of Britian Her thoughts, views and blatant attacks on Ed Burke were valued, highly regarded and poignant I would recommend this book to anyone.Warning Her warmness to the French revo Excellently written book full of passion While Wollstonecraft was regarded as aenthusiastic writer and less of a valid political critic it is evident that her apt view and reasoning were a valueable commodity to her throughout the French Revolution as a foreign observer and during the political upheaval of Britian Her t...

    This was interesting, we did not read all of it, I d say about 2 3 and Wollstonecraft s put herself in an interesting dilemma how do you go about convincing men that women s educations and lives must be enriched because at present they are foolish, useless things without undermining your own argument because you ARE a woman Great historical text, not as much fun to read I d recom...
