Overview

Hester, A Story of Contemporary Life: Volume 2 of 3 by Margaret Oliphant

Margaret Oliphant was a 19th century author best known for writing supernatural fiction, and one of her works that has recently seen a revival of interest is Hester, which she wrote in the 1880s.
"A springy motion in her gait,
A rising step, did indicate
Of pride and joy no common rate
That flush'd her spirit:
I know not by what name beside
I shall it call: if 'twas not pride,
It was a joy to that allied
She did inherit.
*****
She was trained in Nature's school,
Nature had blest her.
A waking eye, a prying mind,
A heart that stirs, is hard to bind:
A hawk's keen sight ye cannot blind,
Ye could not Hester."
CHARLES LAMB.
