Summary
"This manuscript is an investigation of the biographical corpus on Mary Wollstonecraft. It identifies the biases, contradictions, errors, ambiguities and gaps that have run rampant, many of them incomprehensively left unchecked and perpetuated from publication to publication. It also analyzes how these flaws have subsequently and significantly distorted scholars' understanding of Wollstonecraft and her works. Since there has been so much written on this controversial and politically charged figure, the study is substantial, investigating the agenda, problems and strengths of each of eighteen critical biographies beginning with 'Godwin's Memoirs' in 1798 and ending with 'Charlotte Gordon's Romantic Outlaws' (2015). Ten lesser known biographies are briefly treated as well. Synthesizing the biographies and exposing the contradictions, 'Betwixt and Between the Biographies of Mary Wollstonecraft' fills in the gaps, supplying considerable information on Wollstonecraft that has never been published before."--
