Richard Holmes, the renowned biographer of Coleridge and Shelley, explains the two principles that have guided his biographical work: physically visiting all the places that held meaning for his subject; and keeping a two-sided notebook (one page of facts with reflections en face). In this book he first takes us on his journeys and through his notebooks; then goes in search of the lives of five women: Margaret Cavendish, Zélide, Madame de Staël, Mary Wollstonecraft and Mary Somerville.
