Letters Written Between the Years 1784 and 1807 free pdf The literary career of Anna Seward (1742-1809) had many frustrations. Erasmus Darwin once printed her poetry under his own name. Horace Walpole accused her of having 'no imagination'. And despite her evident talents, she was unable to find a patron willing to support a woman. Yet her letters reveal the breadth of her interests and the strength of her literary criticism. In addition to writing to newspapers and magazines, she counted many eminent figures among her correspondents, including James Boswell (who begged for a lock of her hair) and the young Walter Scott. This six-volume selection of her letters, edited by the publisher Archibald Constable (1774-1827), first appeared in 1811. Volume 3 covers the years 1791-4. Ranging from simple but meticulous acknowledgements of praise for her poetry through to her wary opinions of the recent French Revolution, her letters show an unwavering devotion to both her literary criticism and the people closest to her.
