About this book


Tauchert's book revisits the work of feminist icon Mary Wollstonecraft to offer new readings which are both astute and adventurous. It demands that we leave behind the baggage of years of argument over whether or not Wollstonecraft is feminist and instead offers a Wollstonecraft whose work intervenes in the formation of 'womanhood', and as such is both valuable and timely. Giving a comprehensive account of her work, Tauchert makes a significant addition to current theories of feminine writing through her analysis of Wollstonecraft's techniques.
