William Godwin (1756-1836), philosophical anarchist, novelist and intellectual, kept a diary from 1788 until a few weeks before his death. The diary has recently been transcribed and edited and is available on the web at: http://godwindiary.bodleian.ox.ac.uk. It offers a hugely detailed if deeply cryptic window on Godwin's literary life, his familial life (as the lover and then husband of Mary Wollstonecraft and the father of Mary Shelley), and his connections into an extraordinary range of literary, political, artistic and theatrical networks over nearly fifty years. Experts from Oxford University discuss the life and times of this famous 18th Century writer.
