Barbauld (1743-1845) was a noted literary critic, essayist, poet and children's author. Educated in the classics, and given freedom to pursue her interests, she began her career in 1773 with the publication of this collection, the well-received Poems. She continued to write books and numerous essays, taught school with her husband at the Palgrave Academy, and In 1791, she wrote An Epistle to William Wilberforce after his attempt to outlaw the slave trade failed. Her political writings engendered a bit of shock when the readers discovered that these well-reasoned essays were authored by a woman. Barbauld's poetic efforts ended in 1812 at the publication of Eighteen Hundred and Eleven, which was savaged by critics for her comments about Britain's participation in the Napoleonic Wars and the waning of the British empire ( as the American empire waxed).
