The Poetical Works of Mrs. Hemans
1887. With memoir, explanatory notes, etc. The volume contains the verse of Mrs. Hemans, acquaintance of Sir Walter Scott. It is considered that her poetry is the production of a fine imaginative and enthusiastic temperament, but not of a commanding intellect or very complex or subtle nature. It reflects a beautiful but singularly circumscribed life, a life spent in romantic seclusion, without much worldly experience, and warped and saddened by domestic unhappiness and physical suffering.
