William Godwin-husband of Mary Wollstonecraft, father of Mary Shelley, friend of Coleridge, Lamb, Hazlitt, and mentor of Wordsworth, Southey, and Shelley-has been recently recognized as an original moral and revolutionary thinker and a novelist of great skill, a man whose influence was far wider than is usually assumed. In a new biography of this flamboyant and fascinating character, Marshall places Godwin in his social, political, and historical context, traces the development of his ideas, and critically analyzes his works. "Marshall steers his course.with unfailing sensitivity and skill. It is hard to see how the task could have been better done."-Michael Foot, The Observer "An ambitious study that offers a thorough exploration of Godwin's life and complex times."-Linda Simon, Library Journal
