Anna Laetitia Barbauld

a.k.a. Ann Laetitia (nee) Aikin Barbauld

Author Code: EALB

Born: Jun. 20, 1743 - Leicestershire, England

Died: Mar. 9, 1825 - Stoke Newington, England

Anna was educated in the classics by her father. She was an avid reader of many subjects. Her brother, John Aikin, would later collaborate with Anna on a number of works. The family moved to Warrington in 1758 where her father taught at the Academy there. Anna published her first book of poems in 1773 and it was very successful. That same year, she collaborated with her brother John on the publication of Miscellaneous Pieces in Prose, which was equally successful. She married Rouchemont Barbauld in 1774 and moved to Suffolk where they both taught at Palgrave Academy for the next eleven years. During the French Revolution, Anna produced her more radical political pieces. Over the ensuing years, she championed the abolition of the slave trade. They moved to Stoke Newington in 1802, but her husband's mind continued to deteriorate which finally led to his drowning in the New River in 1808. In 1812, Anna published the radical poem, Eighteen Hundred and Eleven, which received vicious reviews for its anti-England views and she was convinced to never publish again. Nevertheless, today it is considered to be one of her finest works. Her other works include Lessons For Children From Two to Three Years Old (1778), Hymns in Prose for Children (1781), An Epistle to William Wilberforce, Esq. on the Rejection of the Bill for Abolishing the Slave Trade (1791), Sins of Government, Sins of Nations (1793) and An Essay on the Origin and Progress of Novel Writing (1810).
