1853 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Anne Grant

Frederick Rowton, in Female Poets of Great Britain (1853) 254.



An education of rough experience, combined with a naturally shrewd, powerful, and sensitive mind, made Mrs. Grant a highly effective and successful writer; and the fame of her literary abilities (even before she published any fruits of them) was so great, that three thousand persons gave her their names as subscribers to her poem of The Highlanders.
