Abstract

Discusses the theory of trauma presented in Mary Wollstonecraft's novel 'Wrongs of Woman, Or Maria.' How the novel was both personally therapeutic for the author and historically significant for what it reveals about women's lives under patriarchy; The repeated dissection of Wollstonecraft's wounds which stem from sexual betrayal; The character of Maria as a representation of the psychological and sexual abuses that wound all women.
