Descripción

The Blazing World by Margaret Cavendish is, all at once, a satire, a treatise on natural philosophy, a work of proto-science fiction, and a defiant venture into a scientific world where women were not usually allowed. It tells the tale of a young Lady who is kidnapped by a man that tries to sail away with her. Through divine interference, however, the ship is tossed into a storm and everyone but the Lady perishes. Blown up to the North Pole, she inadvertently passes into to another world, the Blazing World, where she is almost immediately made supreme ruler. As the Lady begins to exercise her will, Cavendish lays out her own Utopia and discusses a wide range of scientific, political, social, and religious topics. But when a war breaks out in her home world, what will the Lady do with all power of the Blazing World behind her?

Sobre el autor

Margaret Cavendish (1623-1673) was a 17th century trailblazer for women and authors. She was an English aristocrat, philosopher, scientist, author, poet, and playwright. Though they are male-dominated fields, Cavendish was not shy about her studies in philosophy and science, and she expressed her views and findings on each topic within her written work. While Cavendish wrote in a time that discouraged women from doing so, she always published under her name rather than anonymously. Cavendish tackled many themes and topics with her work, including gender, sexuality, power, science, philosophy, and advocacy for animals. Her work The Blazing World is considered to be one of the earliest examples of the science fiction genre.
