William Godwin was Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s father, a Philosopher, who experimented with the form of the novel. 

His works include An Enquiry Concerning Political Justice, novel Caleb Williams. He advocated “ intellectual self-development through the rule of reason, personal freedom bordering on political anarchy, the dismantling of inherited institutions, religious liberalism, and disinterested justice” (Anonymous, Department of English University of Pennsylvania).
