♥ Book Title : Mary, A Fiction and The Wrongs of Woman, or Maria
☯ Full Synopsis : "Mary Wollstonecraft wrote these two novellas at the beginning and end of her years of writing and political activism. Though written at different times, they explore some of the same issues: ideals of femininity as celebrated by the cult of sensibility, the unequal education of women, and domestic subjugation. Mary counters the contemporary trend of weak, emotional heroines with the story of an intelligent and creative young woman who educates herself through her close friendships with men and women. Darker and more overtly feminist, The Wrongs of Woman is set in an insane asylum, where a young woman has been wrongly imprisoned by her husband. By presenting the novellas in light of such texts as Wollstonecraft’s letters, her polemical and educational prose, similar works by other feminists and political reformists, the literature of sentiment, and contemporary medical texts, this edition encourages an appreciation of the complexity and sophistication of Wollstonecraft’s writing goals as a radical feminist in the 1790s."Article| Mary Wollstonecraft| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Hypatia of Alexandria
☯ Full Synopsis : "Hypatiaâe"brilliant mathematician, eloquent Neoplatonist, and a woman renowned for her beautyâe"was brutally murdered by a mob of Christians in Alexandria in 415. She has been a legend ever since. In this engrossing book, Maria Dzielska searches behind the legend to bring us the real story of Hypatia's life and death, and new insight into her colorful world. Historians and poets, Victorian novelists and contemporary feminists have seen Hypatia as a symbolâe"of the waning of classical culture and freedom of inquiry, of the rise of fanatical Christianity, or of sexual freedom. Dzielska shows us why versions of Hypatia's legend have served her champions' purposes, and how they have distorted the true story. She takes us back to the Alexandria of Hypatia's day, with its Library and Museion, pagan cults and the pontificate of Saint Cyril, thriving Jewish community and vibrant Greek culture, and circles of philosophers, mathematicians, astronomers, and militant Christians. Drawing on the letters of Hypatia's most prominent pupil, Synesius of Cyrene, Dzielska constructs a compelling picture of the young philosopher's disciples and her teaching. Finally she plumbs her sources for the facts surrounding Hypatia's cruel death, clarifying what the murder tells us about the tensions of this tumultuous era."Article| Maria Dzielska| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Maria Daambra
☯ Full Synopsis : "Maria first met the rich and debonair Michael Daambra while she was skating with her friends on the frozen Peters River. The fact that she was from a poor hard working family and that he was the sole heir to the rich Daambra familys fortune and lucrative business empire as well, did not dissuade them from going through a lengthy romantic relationship which eventually led to matrimony. Their seven month old marriage was ideal until Michaels father died and the young man had to take over the reins of the familys extensive holdings, whereby he soon took on a new lifestyle of womanizing and alcoholism. Fearing that Maria would create a scandal which could cause him to lose the election for the Governorship of the State, he placed her under the watchful supervision of Marie LaGrande, known simply as LaGrande, thus making his wife a prisoner within the Chateau. LaGrande had a split personalitygentle as a lamb one moment, and as mean as can be the next; her bitterness towards people was a hangover from the harsh beatings that she had received at the diabolical DeVue Academy, a private school for wealthy insubordinate young ladies. Maria was eventually freed from her imprisonment one day, when, in a fit of rage, Michael killed a man and was forced to go on the lam or face homicidal charges. She then moved from the Chateau to a small farm, where at first she ran a small fruit and vegetable stand but which quickly expanded into a thriving lucrative Garden Center. A decade later, she accidentally ran into her fugitive husband roving freely about in a shopping mall, and fearing for her life, she notified the police as to where they could locate the elusive murderer after she had shadowed him to his rental apartment. The institutionalized Michael was never able to recover from the shock of having been apprehended after so many years of freedom, and died in a mental institution shortly thereafter, while awaiting trial. Maria met an old acquaintance, Charles O'Shaughnessy, and married him after a long courtship. They raised four children, and went on to live a long and happy life."Article| Alexander E.

♥ Book Title : Ave Maria in Auschwitz
☯ Full Synopsis : "Felicia Weingarten has saved poetic expressions of her life for us in this collection of short stories from WWII Poland and her experiences of surviving the Lodz ghetto and four concentration camps during the Holocaust. The stories are powerful not so much in how they speak to our minds but how they tear into our hearts. We are drawn into Felicia's life vicariously at first, as though a stranger watching from the sidelines. But as each story unfolds, oftentimes with a twist at the end, we are suddenly faced with our own humanity, our own survival, our own actions and our own conscience as human beings. We are led into the darkness holding hands with an innocent, yet hopeful and courageous teenager; we emerge as reflective, perhaps even changed people, because of our human experience shared with Felicia. These are stories that transcend time and place and challenge us to be people of integrity, hope and commitment."Article| Felicia Karo Weingarten| Statement ..."
