From the cover: “Sara Coleridge (1802-52), daughter of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, was a versatile and accomplished writer, one of the best women poets of her time. As well as the children’s verse for which she is best known, she wrote love poems, religious verse and ballads, and translated works by Aeschylus, Lucretius arid Petrarch. Her poetry has never before been published as a collection; half her poems have never previously been published at all. Her work is now available to attract the readership it deserves.

With this edition of her complete verse, Peter Swaab restores Sara Coleridge to a place alongside Felicia Hemans and Laetitia Landon in the poetry of the first half of the nineteenth-century. An introduction and detailed notes set the poems in context.”
