Rate this:
This is a biography of one of the most influential families in the history of ideas. William Godwin's treatise on liberalism, Political Justice, brought the ideas of the French Revolution to Britain. A Vindication of the Rights of Women by his wife, Mary Wollstonecraft, marked the start of the modern women's movement. At a time when Godwin's early achievements had been largely pushed aside, the poet Shelley ran off with his daughter, Mary Godwin, who wrote Frankenstein.
