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.
