Anna Laetitia Barbauld
Wedgwood cameo of Barbauld from 1775 Anna Laetitia Barbauld, by herself possibly , as in French) (née Aikin) (June 20, 1743 – March 9, 1825) was a prominent eighteenth-century British poet, essayist, and children's author. A "woman of letters" who published in multiple genres, Barbauld had a successful writing career at a time when female professional writers were rare. She was a noted teacher at the celebrated Palgrave Academy and an innovative children's writer; her famous primers provided a model for pedagogy for more than a century. Her essays demonstrated that it was possible for a woman to be publicly engaged in politics, and other women authors emulated her.Even more importantly, her poetry was foundational to the development of Romanticism in England. Barbauld was also a literary critic, and her anthology of eighteenth-century British novels helped establish the canon as we know it today.
