'If ever there was a book calculated to make a man in love with its author, this appears to me to be the book.' William Godwin, the author's future husband, was not alone in admiring Letters written during a short residence in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark, Wollstonecraft's most popular book during her lifetime. Not easy to categorize, it is both an arresting travel book and a moving exploration of her personal and political selves. Wollstonecraft set out for Scandinavia just two weeks after her first suicide attempt, on a mission from the lover whose affections she doubted, to recover his silver on a ship that had gone missing. With her baby daughter and a nursemaid, she travelled across the dramatic landscape and wrote sublime descriptions of the natural world, and the events and people she encountered. What emerges most vividly is Wollstonecraft's courage and ability to look beyond her own suffering to the turmoil around her in revolutionary Europe, and a better future. This edition includes further material on the silver ship, Wollstonecraft's personal letters to Imlay during her trip, an extract from Godwin's memoir, and a selection of contemporary reviews.

Like every word she wrote, Wollstonecraft's letters are full of personal revelations and wise thoughts. They are doubly interesting because can trace the intimate thought which lay beneath the public statement. One could pick out of this book enough epigrams to make a motto calendar. "Men with common minds seldom break through general rules. Prudence is ever the resort of weakness." "There is always a mixture of sentiment and imagination in voluptuousness " might have been written as a partial apology for the wayward Imlay. She relates her interview with the Prime Minister of Denmark, and sums him up as being "more anxious not to do wrong than to do good."

Not illustrated. 1802 Excerpt: ...tenderness than passion; the latter has a higher source; call it imagination, genius, or what you will, it is something very different. I have been laughing with these simple, worthy folky to give you one of my half score danish words, and letting as much of my heart flow out in sympathy as they can take. Adieu! I must trip up the rocks. The rain is over. Let me catch pleasure on ths wing--I may be melancholy to morrow. Now all my nerves keep time with the melody of nature. Ah! let me be happy whilst 1 can. The tear starts as I think of it. I must flee from thought, and find refuge from sorrow in a strong imagination--the only solace for a feeling heart. Phantoms of bliss! ideal forms of excellence!.again enclose me in your magic circle, and wipe clear from my remembrance the disapK pointments that render the sympathy painful, which experience rather increases than damps, by giving the indulgence of feeling the sanction of reason. Once more farewell 1 LETTER XI..I Left Portoer, the little haven I mentioned, soon after I finished my last letter. The sek was rough; and I perceived that our pilot-was right not to venture farther during a hazy night. We had agreed to pay four dollars for a boat from Helgeraac. I mention the sum, because they would demariS twice as much from a stranger. I wai obliged to pay fifteen for the onel hired at Stromstad. When we were ready to set out, our boatman offered to return a dollar, and let us go in one.of the boats of the place, the? pilot who lived there being better acquainted with the coast. He only demanded a dollar and half, which was reasonable. I found him a civil and rather intelligent man: he was in the american service 'several years, during the revolution. I soon perceived that an experienced mariner was necessary t...
