This is the definitive biography not just of a man, but of the transition from the Enlightenment, with its emphasis on cold reason, to the Romantic age, with its passionate commitment to sensation. The head wars with the heart throughout this book, and as St. Clair shows us, Godwin's allegiance all his days was to the head. The result is a cold-blooded, but clear-eyed, look at a radical past.
