Synopsis

Selected for Richard & Judy's Book Club 2005

Mary Robinson was one of the most flamboyant women of the late-eighteenth century. After being raised by a middle-class father, Mary was married, age 14, to Thomas Robinson. His dissipated lifestyle landed the couple and their baby in debtors' prison, where Mary wrote her first book of poetry. On her release, Mary quickly became one of the most popular actresses of the day, famously playing Perdita in The Winter’s Tale for a rapt audience that included the Prince of Wales, who fell madly in love with her. This authoritative and engaging book presents a fascinating portrait of a woman who was, variously, darling of the London stage, an admired poet and a mistress to the most powerful men in England.
