1775, Jun1827, Jan 9
an English biographer, novelist and poet. Elizabeth wanted to become a playwright, but she had no success and soon turned to poetry with a social message. "The Abolition of the Slave Trade" appeared in 1809, with verse by James Montgomery and James Grahame on the same subject. Then came two novels, the second of which was also translated into French. She later turned to non-fiction, translating from German and introducing a volume of letters by Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock, and to writing and compiling competent biographical materials on a variety of individuals.
