Description

This critical edition of the poems of Anna Seward (1742-1809) re-establishes one of the most popular and prolific poets of the early Romantic period. Her work influenced Charllotte Smith and Mary Robinson and later both Wordsworth and Coleridge.

Her reputation was so high that Sir Walter Scott edited the posthumous edition of her poems in 1810. Unlike Scott's, this edition reproduces the poems as they were first published in periodicals and collections during Seward's lifetime, allowing scholars to experience them as eighteenth century readers did. It also includes mire than 200 poems that were excluded from the Scott edition.

Table of Contents

Louisa, A Political Novel in Four Epistles (1784) Llangollen Vale, With Other Poems (1796) Original Sonnets on Various Subjects: And Odes Paraphrased from Horace (1799) Poems Uncollected Before 1810
