Born in 1756, William Godwin was considered one of the preeminent radical thinkers of his time. His most famous works, An Enquiry Concerning Political Justice and Things as They are or the Adventures of Caleb Williams, were considered scathing attacks on political institutions and aristocracy. He married feminist writer Mary Wollstonecraft in 1797, and their daughter Mary (author of Frankenstein) was born in the same year.
