Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Enticingly subtitled 'poet, novelist, feminist and first mistress of George IV', this edition of Mary Robinson's memoirs includes a biographical introduction, brief chronology, and explanatory notes. Admired by Coleridge for her literary skill, she earned the respect of David Garrick and the attentions of the Prince Regent through her career as an actress. Her friends Mary Wollstonecraft and William Godwin greatly appreciated her radical and feminist beliefs. Yet this life of fame and fortune was fraught with family tragedy, ill-health and malicious gossip. With an extraordinarily moving and compelling candour, this intellectual and notorious beauty reveals a fascinating glimpse of the social machinations of late 18th-century high society. (Kirkus UK)
