Mary Robinson’s Conflicted Celebrity

In Romanticism and Celebrity Culture, 1750-1850
Ed. by Tom Mole
Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2009

“Much Robinson criticism positions Robinson either as a woman without agency or as a publicity-seeking monster. Mole’s chapter, however, recognizes the complexities surrounding Robinson and her part in the rise of celebrity culture.”
