This paper discusses Mary Wollstonecraft's "Maria" that appears to be filled with extreme tragedy and addresses a problematic political structure but, in the fragmented end, seems to leave unanswered many questions about a woman's role and place in life. The author says that there are several new questions posed about female sexuality.

From the Paper:

"What would seem a more appropriate ending for Maria then the one which re-enforces the idea of the betraying man, but changes the impression of the deceiving woman? Maria is betrayed by Darnford, and she wants to commit suicide. But, instead of turning her back on her, Jemima searches for Maria's child and brings her back to Maria, giving her hope to continue living."
