  • Description
  • Reviews
Ann Yearsley was an English poet, playwright, and novelist who began her adult life as a milkwoman and later became the chief support of her family through her writing. This biography offers the most thoroughly researched account of the complex political and social causes of Yearsley’s exclusion from the annals of literature.

An excellent resource from which romanticists can begin to offer a more thorough assessment of Yearsley's place in English early romantic culture.
