1632, Jan 11664, Jun 22
an Anglo-Welsh poet, translator, and woman of letters. She achieved renown as translator of Pierre Corneille's Pompée and Horace, and for her editions of poetry. The literary atmosphere of her circle is preserved in the excellent Letters of Orinda to Poliarchus, published by Bernard Lintot in 1705 and 1709. Philips's translations and poems consider questions of political authority and express her royalist beliefs. Her works also consider the nature and value of friendship between women. There have been speculations about whether, and in what way, her work could be described as "lesbian."
