Chapter 3 The Gothic Structure of Mary Robinson’s Memoirs Sharon M. Setzer Shortly before her death on 26 December 1800, Mary Robinson enjoined her daughter, Maria Elizabeth, to publish the autobiographical narrative that became the centerpiece of Memoirs of the Late Mrs.

Maria Elizabeth adds that it is “impossible” for her to “feel indifferent to the vindication of a being so beloved, and ever so lamented, whose real character was little known, and who, in various instances, was the victim of calumny and misrepresentation” (1: ii). With the word vindication, Maria Elizabeth foregrounds a motive for writing that does not rise to the surface of her mother’s text until she interrupts the narrative of her life, after almost 80 pages, to assert, “Indeed the world has mistaken the character of my mind; I have ever been the reverse of volatile and dissipated; I mean not to write my own eulogy; though, with the candid and sensitive mind, I shall I trust succeed in my vindication” (1: 78–9).

Restrained and reticent to the end, Dorothy Wordsworth offers a challenge to the reader accustomed to the surfeit of twenty-first century autobiographical excess. Gertrude Stein’s speculations on human nature and the human mind help illuminate the radical philosophical and aesthetic import of Wordsworth’s challenge to the confessional subject.
