Lecture 1.5: Frankenstein, Mary Shelley
The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano:
Nigerian prince who was taken into slavery; account about his
service as a slave and ultimately ending with his return
alongside his master when he buys his own freedom and
becomes an extraordinary writer; struggles with the fact that
people do not believe that he had the potential to write to that
Mary Wollstonecraft Quotes:
Women ought to have representatives, instead of being
arbitrarily governed without any direct share allowed them in
the deliberations of government
No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for
happiness, the good he seeks
Taught from infancy that beauty is woman’s scepter, the mind
shapes itself to the body, and roaming round its gilt cage, only
seeks to adorn its prison
Virtue can only flourish among equals
Strengthen the female mind by enlarging it, and there will be
an end to blind obedience
Slavery to monarchs and ministers, which the world will be long
freeing itself from, and whose deadly grasp stops the progress
of the human mind, is not yet abolished
