Discusses how the subject, incarcerated within madhouses after killing her mother, became the confidante of such Romantics as Coleridge and Wordsworth and accessed literature in a way that would have been normally impossible for a woman of her class and time, describing how she and essayist brother Charles Lamb collaborated on Tales from Shakespeare. 15,000 first printing.
