How well do you know William Godwin? [quiz]

In October, William Godwin (1756–1836) was featured as our Philosopher of the Month. He was a leading political philosopher and public intellectual during the crisis in British politics in the 1790s and achieved fame with the publication of his treatise “An Enquiry Concerning Political Justice.” The social theories on liberty and individualism that he espoused in the book would later exert a profound influence on generations of thinkers, writers, and poets.

You may have read his work, but how much do you really know about William Godwin and his famous literary family of writers? Test your knowledge with our quiz below.
