Quick Reference

(1823–1902),

collaborated on minor works with her husband Richard Henry Stoddard and wrote The Morgesons (1862), Two Men (1865), and Temple House (1867), realistic novels set in her native Massachusetts. Although praised by Hawthorne, these were considered too grim for the average reader because of their truthful use of local color, anticipating Sarah Orne Jewett and Mary W. Freeman. Her Poems (1895) display poor technique, but have an intense, sometimes morbid, quality of personal revelation.
