Summary
"Caroline Bowles Southey is an important nineteenth-century writer whose work deserves to be better known. Initially famous for her prose sketches, 'Chapters on Churchyards', it is her poetry which best illustrates her outstanding gifts. It ranges from romantic epic to comic burlesque and from dramatic social protest to the meditative personal lyric, with her major achievement undoubtedly being her blank verse autobiography, The Birth-day (1836)."--BOOK JACKET. "The present volume combines a bio-critical account of Caroline Bowles Southey's career with a general selection of her works, both poetry and prose, with the latter drawing attention to her remarkable talent as a letterwriter. It will appeal to scholars of Romanticism and the Victorian period as well as to women's studies specialists and historians of autobiography."--BOOK JACKET
