The Collected Poems of Anna Seward, Hardback Book

The Collected Poems of Anna Seward Hardback

Edited by Lisa L. (University of Texas, USA) Moore


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.
