Beschreibung

Mary Leapor (1722-1746), a Northamptonshire kitchen maid, produced a substantial body of exceptional poetry which was only published after her early death at the age of twenty-four. This is a timely examination of the work of a poet who has remained almost forgotten for 200 years. Leapor is one of many gifted poets, mainly women and labourers, whose work stands outside the traditional canon of eighteenth-century verse. Richard Greene draws on extensive primary research to present substantial new information about Leapor's life. He discusses her protests against the injustices suffered by women and the poor, her attempts to gain an education, and the influence that illness and the expectation of an early death had upon her writing. Throughout, Leapor is seen in relation both to the mainstream poets of her time and to those whom literary history has consigned to obscurity. Mary Leapor: A Study in Eighteenth-Century Women's Poetry thus not only provides insight into the work of a single neglected woman poet, but offers a sometimes surprising perspective on the literary history of the 'Age of Pope and Johnson'.
