daughter of S. T. Coleridge, grew up largely in the company of Southey and his family and of the Wordsworths. She edited and annotated her father's papers with such skill that much of her work still stands. Her Pretty Lessons for Good Children appeared in 1834, and her long prose narrative ‘Phantasmion’ in 1837. The lively and engaging Memoir and Letters, published by her daughter in 1873, provides much information on the literary and personal lives of the Coleridges, the Wordsworths, and the Southeys.
