|Mary Wollstonecraft by
John Opie just before she died
Why? – because in those days of long ago before she who could be anyone started a blog, when she was visiting St Pancras Workhouse she could walk through St Pancras Old Church churchyard ... and came across the Memorial to me ... my bones have long been removed to rest in St Peter’s Churchyard, Bournemouth.
Why? was she visiting St Pancras Workhouse ... long after Workhouses went out of fashion, and I had long gone? She was visiting her mother at the Workhouse now Hospital before her mother was relocated to Eastbourne.
St Pancras Old Church in 1815. It was largely
reconstructed in the 19th Century. The River
Fleet’s two headwaters in Hampstead Heath flow
into the Hampstead Ponds and Highgate Ponds
before the river gets directed underground by.
So much change which she and her blogger friends are documenting in ways that Harold Godwin and I could never envisage ... bearing the Frankenstein creator was almost a baby too far ... but look what my daughter has given you – a genre within novel writing.
I did not live long (1759 – 1797) ... but over the years my writings have become appreciated and I am now regarded as being one of the founding feminist philosophers.
Life was difficult I had to give my earnings to my father, ultimately became a governess, while continuing to write – helped by friends who supported our advocation of women’s rights.
She saw my Memorial and my name inspired her – Wollstonecraft – and she printed out some information to read to her mother about us and the St Pancras area ...
|Who is She?!
I, Mary Wollstonecraft, inspired the She who would be me, she is the author of the Positive Letters ... Inspirational Stories Blog. I had that passion for writing I wrote to improve the rights of women and girls.
Congratulations to She who would be Marilyn for what will be a tremendous fun blogging day out ... promoting her new book out in November "Watching Willow Watts".
