review ã Perdita The Literary Theatrical Scandalous Life of Mary Robinson 107 This thoroughly engaging and richly researched book presents a compelling portrait of Mary Robinson–darling of the London stage mistress to the most powerful men in England feminist thinker and bestselling author described by Samuel Taylor Coleridge as “a woman of undoubted genius”One of the most flamboyant free spirits of the late eighteenth century Mary Robinson led a life that was marked by reversals of fortune After being abandoned by her merchant father who le. Occasionally I have performed on stage When that happened the lights were so bright that I couldn t see beyond them though one can hear the rustles and exhalations of a great crowd packed into a small spaceHow much tougher must it have been in the eighteenth century when candlelight was the most powerful source of light when it was easy to watch the people in the boxes watching you This book was not only a meticulously researched account of a fascinating woman who like so many eighteenth century female writers was overlooked by male writers of history except the salacious references to her amours specifically with Prinny Mary Robinson later known as Perdita after she played in A Winter s Tale began her career on stage And what a time for the stage Famous writers and actors an enthusiastic audience and especially an enthusiastic press In fact the accounts of the morning papers articles about performances performers and the puff pieces and responses by those same performers reminds me of the interactions between artists and audience today only instead of Twitter fests you had the caricatures printed overnight and posted in shop windows the next day and those gossipy morning papersWell Mary Robinson the sole support of a worthless husband at the ripe old age of twenty two caught the eye of the young prince who would eventually become Regent According to her she wrote up her autobiography and in true eighteenth century fashion managed to present herself as eternally young frail innocent and pursued she caught the eye of the seventeen year old prince who was stunned by her beauty and talent and who pursued her first with a secret correspondence He signed himself as Florizel According to the prince and his friends she flirted with him from the stage and pursued him via letter becoming his PerditaWhen they commenced their affair she retired from the stage and paraded around town in the latest hot car er that is carriage but she had not given up her connections to the literary world When the torrid affair cooled and she found herself partially paralyzed she started up a literary career that made her a famous name then hobnobbing with the likes of Godwin and Sheridan and supporting women in drama and writingThe book relies heavily on uotations from her letters and writings from others building a fascinating complicated picture not only of a life but a time

review ã Perdita The Literary Theatrical Scandalous Life of Mary Robinson 107 Ft England to establish a fishery among the Canadian Eskimos Mary was married at age fifteen to Thomas Robinson His dissipation landed the couple and their baby in debtors’ prison where Mary wrote her first book of poetry gaining her the patronage of Georgiana Duchess of DevonshireOn her release Mary rose to become one of the London theater’s most alluring actresses famously playing Perdita in The Winter’s Tale for a rapt audience that included the Prince of Wales. I found the first three uarters of this book for interesting than the last partly due to the change in Mary Robinson s circumstances but also in the writing which didn t always hold my attention It is however a most informative book about a really interesting woman who reinvented herself from actress to Royal mistress and then an author of both poetry and prose I hadn t realised the word celebrity had been around for so longThe latter part of the book contains much of a literary criticism feel whereas I wanted biography but I do recognise the two are inextricably linked in that Mary Robinson put so much of herself into her writing I feel I have rather overlooked Mary even though I must have seen her portrait several times at Chawton She deserves to be remembered along with the likes of Mary Wollstonecraft and Mrs Radcliff
