Joanna Baillie

Author Code: EJOB

Born: Sep. 11, 1762 - Bothwell, Lanarkshire, Scotland

Died: Feb. 23, 1851 - Hamstead, England

Educated at boarding school, Baillie showed an early interest in the theatre. In 1783, she moved to London where she met Fanny Burney and others of London's literati. Her aunt encouraged her to write poetry and in 1790, she published her first work, Poems: Wherein it is Attempted to Describe Certain Views of Nature and of Rustic Manners, which was subsequently revised and published as Fugitive Verses in 1840. The following year she relocated with her mother and sister, to Colchester and she began working on Plays on the Passion. In 1802, she moved to Hampstead and in 1804 published Miscellaneous Plays. Whilst Baillie's plays were very well-written and creative, they often displayed a lack of stagecraft and were often criticized for that reason, much to her irritation. Today she is recognized as an innovator on the stage and is seen as a significant woman writer of the nineteenth century. Her other works include Family Legend (1810), De Monfort (1821), Metrical Legends of Exalted Characters (1821), Miscellaneous Plays - 3 Vols. (1836) and Dramatic Poetry - 3 Vols. (1836).
