"Mary Russell Mitford described Anna Seward (1742-1809) as 'all tinkling and tinsel - a sort of Dr Darwin in petticoats'. It was Erasmus Darwin who first encouraged Seward to write poetry, and whose influence is visible in her elaborate and sometimes tortuous style. She was supremely confident in her own taste and judgement, a confidence given expression as much in the handsome presentation of this volume as in its content. The title poem celebrates the two famous bluestocking ladies of Llangollen, Lady Eleanor Butler and Sarah Ponsonby, who renounced society and lived together in Welsh solitude for fifty years. There are also poems of a more intimate nature including Eyam, a revisiting of the scenes of her childhood. Her work stands at the end rather than the beginning of a period; but it does not lack feeling, and it throws the nature of the new poetry of the 1790s into sharp relief."--BOOK JACKET
