Anna Seward (1742–1809) was known as ‘the Swan of Lichfield’ and her poetry was initially circulated among a coterie of friends that included Erasmus Darwin (grandfather of Charles). She gained fame through her elegy to Cook in 1780. She contributed to arguments on poetry in the press, and published Llangollen Vale, with Other Poems in 1796, and Original Sonnets in 1799.
