    Barbauld is definitely one to be studied I can't believe I haven't been aware of her until now For me she is most attractive in her philosophies and in the titling of her work A poem called To Dr Aikin on his Complaining that she neglected him October 20th 1768 is really exciting to me by name but in execution I found not as much to love Her obsession with the embryo stage of any idea was particularly interesting to me though and I wish I had the time to track it research it I don't know folksfind the women writers we've lost to the puffy chairs given to Wordsworth and Coleridge This woman was their role model not vice versa

    Fascinating The poetry of Barbauld didn't move me as much as her essays with the exception of the poem Eight Hundred and Eleven which was very powerful I just prefer prose writing and really enjoy a political essay Barbauld writes with a clarity and precision and intelligence that inspires envy in other writers Her writing remains relevant and piercing It is a tremendous loss to scholarship that her writing is only presented in Women's Literature classes
