Maria: or, the Wrongs of Woman

Maria: or, the Wrongs of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft
By: (1759-1797)

I recently finished reading a captivating novel called Maria: or, the Wrongs of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft. This thought-provoking book delves into the injustices faced by women in society during the late 18th century.

The protagonist, Maria, is a young woman who is trapped in an unhappy marriage with an abusive husband. Throughout the novel, we witness Maria’s struggle for independence and self-determination in a society that restricts women’s freedom and agency.

Wollstonecraft’s writing is powerful and emotional, drawing the reader into Maria’s world and evoking strong feelings of empathy and outrage. The novel raises important questions about gender equality, societal norms, and the inherent rights of women.

Overall, Maria: or, the Wrongs of Woman is a poignant and thought-provoking read that sheds light on the challenges faced by women in a patriarchal society. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in feminist literature or historical fiction.

Book Description:
Maria: or, The Wrongs of Woman is Mary Wollstonecraft's unfinished novelistic sequel to her revolutionary political treatise A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. It was published posthumously in 1798 by her husband, William Godwin. Maria revolves around the story of a woman imprisoned in an insane asylum by her husband, and focuses on the societal rather than the individual "wrongs of woman". Publicised at the same time as Wollstonecraft's memoirs, both were considered scandalous. Not until the 20th century was the novel considered an important historical and feminist work.
