Overview

Williams (1761-1827) was a famous British poet of her time, says Kennedy (English, Saint Mary's U., Halifax), and gained an international reputation for her books on the French Revolution, which she observed from Paris. She examines her works in chronological order, using an interdisciplinary approach to encompass the range of British and European literature, history and politics. Annotation c.
