In her severe biography of Anna Seward (1742-1809), Teresa Barnard examines the poet's unpublished letters and manuscripts, supplying a clean standpoint on Seward's lifestyles and old milieu that restores and problematizes Seward's rigorously built narrative of her life.

Of the poet Anna Seward, it can be acknowledged with a few veracity that hers used to be an epistolary lifestyles. what's recognized of Seward comes from six volumes of her letters and from juvenile letters that prefaced her books of poetry, all released posthumously. That Seward meant her correspondence to function her autobiography is obvious, yet she couldn't have expected that the letters she meant for e-book will be vastly edited and censored through her literary editor, Walter Scott, and by means of her writer, Archibald Constable. Stripped in their power and lots more and plenty in their value, the broadcast letters fail to remember telling stories of the intricacies of the wedding industry and Seward's personal battles opposed to gender inequality within the academic and office spheres. Seward's correspondents incorporated Erasmus Darwin, William Hayley, Helen Maria Williams, and Robert Southey, and her letters are full of tales and anecdotes approximately her pals' lives and characters, what they seemed like, and the way they lived. really compelling is Barnard's dialogue of Seward's wonderful final will and testomony, a twenty-page record that summarizes her existence, achievements, and self-definition as a writing lady. Barnard's biography not just demanding situations what's identified approximately Seward, yet presents new information regarding the lives and instances of eighteenth-century writers.
