Quick Reference

(fl. 1640s–1650s) Poet, unknown except for a volume of religious verse (Divine Songs and Meditations) bearing her name, published in London in 1653. It seems from the poems and prefatory material that she lived in the country, suffered chronic ill health, was middle aged, and had no children. She wrote during the English Civil War but her precise religious and political affiliations are elusive. Her poems use innovative forms and much biblical reference, especially to the Song of Songs (see Bible), and include a verse paraphrase of Ecclesiastes 12. There is an edition by Sidney Gottlieb, 1996, from the sole surviving copy, in the Huntingdon Library, California.
