Wells was an English writer, now best known for his work in the science fiction genre. Wells is sometimes called "The Father of Science Fiction. His most notable science fiction works include The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, The Invisible Man and The Island of Doctor Moreau. Ann Veronica" is a testament to Wells' range as a writer. The titular character, Ann Veronica, is the embodiment of the feminist ideals rising in importance around the time of the book's publication (1909). Ann Veronica combats the Edwardian English ideals as the male figures in the story can't understand her desire to stray from the dormant, submissive social norms of women.Ann Veronica: A Modern Love Story Stong-willed, reckless, and fiercely independent, Ann Veronica Stanley is determined to be a "Person," to work, love, and, above all, to live. Walking away from her stifling father and the social conventions of her time, she leaves drab suburbia for Edwardian London and encounters an unknown world of suffragettes, Fabians, and free love. But it is only when she meets the charismatic Capes that she truly confronts the meaning of her new found freedom. Exploring the conflict between female empowerment and the sacrifices people make for love, this novel caused a sensation-damned in the press and preached against from the pulpits-when it was first published in 1909, due to Wells' groundbreaking treatment of female sexuality.

Riassunto: Herbert George "H. G." Wells was an English writer, now best known for his work in the science fiction genre. Wells is sometimes called "The Father of Science Fiction. His most notable science fiction works include The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, The Invisible Man and The Island of Doctor Moreau. Ann Veronica" is a testament to Wells' range as a writer. The titular character, Ann Veronica, is the embodiment of the feminist ideals rising in importance around the time of the book's publication (1909). Ann Veronica combats the Edwardian English ideals as the male figures in the story can't understand her desire to stray from the dormant, submissive social norms of women. Ann Veronica: A Modern Love Story Stong-willed, reckless, and fiercely independent, Ann Veronica Stanley is determined to be a "Person," to work, love, and, above all, to live. Walking away from her stifling father and the social conventions of her time, she leaves drab suburbia for Edwardian London and encounters an unknown world of suffragettes, Fabians, and free love. But it is only when she meets the charismatic Capes that she truly confronts the meaning of her new found freedom. Exploring the conflict between female empowerment and the sacrifices people make for love, this novel caused a sensation?damned in the press and preached against from the pulpits?when it was first published in 1909, due to Wells' groundbreaking treatment of female sexuality.

Dal retro di copertina: H.G. Wells?s 1909 novel centres on the coming of age of the spirited Ann Veronica, who defies her father by fleeing their suburban home to live independently in London. There she mingles with feminists, studies biology, learns jiu jitsu, and even participates in a suffragette raid on the House of Commons, which lands her in jail. The novel was a success in part because of its transparently autobiographical dimension: the married celebrity author based the novel?s central romance on his affair with Amber Reeves, the daughter of two prominent Fabians. The National Social Purity Crusade pressured libraries not to circulate Ann Veronica, prompting Wells to regard himself as a ?symbol against the authoritative, the dull, the presumptuously established, against all that is hateful and hostile to youth and tomorrow.? The novel absorbs readers as fully today as it did a hundred years ago; Ann Veronica?s engagement with socialists and suffragettes resonates with our own era?s renewed involvement in social and political protest movements like Occupy Wall Street. 
Historical documents expand on the novel?s autobiographical dimension with letters between Wells and Amber Reeves. Materials on the suffrage movement, on attempts to censor the novel, and on domesticity are also included.
