From the Paper
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley is noted for one book, Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus, though she wrote other works. She is also known for her marriage by Percy Bysshe Shelley. Her mother was Mary Wollstonecraft, an early feminist best known for her book The Vindication of the Rights of Women (1792), a work in which she expounded in the ills facing women and on the need for justice for women. Her stand was considered radical, and as a result she had to portray her heroine in a special way:
The exaltation of feeling prized by Romantics posed severe problems for women. However liberating, female desire was singularly hard to express. Women had to survive in a culture in which the search for personal fulfillment had no ready place. Small wonder then
