    Read A Vindication of the Rights of Woman for EN4363 Romantic Writing and Women I was pleasantly surprised by what an engaging and enlightening read this was when I began this book I expected it to be the sort of text I could appreciate historically, but not entirely enjoy, but for the most part I genuinely enjoyed reading this book I did find that it got bogged down in repetitions at times, but I know this is because Wollstonecraft had very little time to edit this text before it went to Read A Vindication of the Rights of Woman for EN4363 Romantic Writing and Women I was pleasantly surprised by what an engaging and enlightening read this was when I began this book I expected it to be the sort of text I could appreciate historically, but not entirely enjoy, but for the most part I genuinely enjoyed reading this book I did find that it got bogged down in repetitions at tim...

    I feel really bad DNFing this but I am not sure whatI can get out of it Apparently Wollstonecraft wrote this in a hurry, and it shows She sets out most of her points in the introduction and then goes around and around and around making them over and over again The style is slow going, but that s not why I stopped I feel like I have got the message, and I can t bring myself to plough slowly through the rest A Vindication of the Rights of Women is obviously a very important book, and it I feel really bad DNFing this but I am not sure whatI can get out of it Apparently Wollstonecraft wrote this in a hurry, and it shows She sets out most of her points in the introduction and then goes around and around and around making them over and over again The style is slow going, but that s not why I stopped I feel like I have got the message, and I can t bring myself to plough slowly through the rest A Vindication of the Rights of Women is obviously a very important book, and it is right that Wollstonecraft has been given a great deal of credit for it down the years She is responding directly to immedia...

    This was interesting, we did not read all of it, I d say about 2 3 and Wollstonecraft s put herself in an interesting dilemma how do you go about convincing men that women s educations and lives must be enriched because at present they are foolish, useless things without undermining your own argument because you ARE a woman Great historical text, not as much fun to read I d recommend listening to it try Librivox.org only because I have yet to actually physic...
