egularly the subject of cartoonists andsatirical novelists, Mary ‘Perdita’ Robinsonachieved public notoriety as the mistress of the young Prince of Wales, later George IV. Thiseight-volume critical edition consolidates therecent shift in emphasis from her salacious lifeto her considerable literary achievements as both a novelist and poet. And recent interest inRobinson’s work is fast awarding her a place of importance within the canon of British RomanticLiterature. Her association with key romantic
gures such as William Godwin and Mary 
 Wollstonecraft, and the thematic comparisons between Robinson’s work and that of hercontemporary Charlotte Smith, make her a serious
gure for scholarly research.
 With a keen eye for cultural and social critiqueher works expose the moral shortcomings of highsociety in Georgian England: the misogynistictreatment of women and the fetishistic obsession with wealth and social status receive particularattention. But more than social critique, these works identify Robinson as an avatar of subversivepolitics. Her well documented sympathy for theFrench Revolution evinces her political radicalism. And her unconventional treatment of gender andsexuality is emphasised by representations of transvestism and incest.This critical edition presents all seven of 
Robinson’s novels for the rst time. Also included
is the unpublished play
