Read Perdita The Literary Theatrical Scandalous Life of Mary Robinson 100 This compelling and richly researched book presents a fascinating portrait of Mary Robinson–darling of the London stage mistress to the most powerful men in England feminist thinker and bestselling author Though one of the most flamboyant free spirits of the late eighteenth century Mary led a life that was marked by reversals of fortune After being abandoned by her father Mary. Mary Robinson lived a very interesting life in very interesting times Famous stage actress first mistress of Prince George later George IV aka Prinny influential fashion icon trend setter political activist proto feminist loving mother and celebrated poetwriter Mary aka Perdita from one of her most famous stage roles embodied the culture and pagentry of the 18th century English world She was arguably a woman born ahead of her time A woman who had a sense of who she was and what she wanted out of life and was able to capitalize on both her strengths as well as her weaknesses to make a name for herself Her turnaround from young naive actress to tawdry mistress of powerful men to respected author is almost unimaginable and she did all this before her death in 1800 at the age of 43Her beauty was legendary by her mid 20 s she had already been immortalized by Gainsborough Reynolds and other famous painters of the period She introduced new fashions and almost single handedly changed the style of female clothing from the tightly corsetted and hoop skirted designs of the mid 1700 s to the flowing body freeing styles of the late 1700 s and early 1800 s Not until the Victorian period would women s bodies be tortured again for the sake of fashionHer views were radical for the time and for her sex but she never waivered in them even when it made her unpopular She was an exceptional mother and daughter keeping both near to her for her entire life and sharing close ties to many women of both high and low estate from Georgiana Duchess of Devonshire to an actressprostitute friend fallen on hard times Her relationships with men weren t so advantageous her father and later her husband deserted her Her lovers failed to keep their promises of protection and fidelity although to his credit Prince George gave her an annuity for the rest of her life and stayed a friend to herWhile still a young woman she became crippled and was never able to walk again At that point in her life she determined to re invent herself and re gain respectibility by becoming a lady of learning and culture Although her poetry and books aren t remembered today she had fame and influence with her writing at the timeAll in all an enjoyable read although I have to give it only 3 stars due to author Paula Bryne s ponderous and sometimes dry writing style It took me a long time to get through this book not because Perdita s life story wasn t fascinating oh it was but because Byrne s writing wasn t fascinating I think I would have really liked Perdita alot and would now include her in one of my dinner with my favorite dead historical figures party I wonder how she d get along with the likes of Anne Boleyn Laura Ingalls Wilder and Daniel Boonehmmm
