Probably December 1840
Anna Caroline Wood, later the novelist AS, was born in Essex, either in the vicarage in Cressing
or in a house called Glazenwood
, near Braintree
AS issued at the nearby town of Braintree
a book of poetry under the pseudonym 'C'. Entitled Thoughts Versified
, the volume is now certainly known to be hers.
By 13 June 1896
AS published her last novel, Lesbia: A Study in One Volume
, which depicts the "stifling" effect of male idealization of women.
AS died in her mid-seventies, probably at her home in Brighton. Her death was apparently the consequence of an accident which occurred some time before this, in which she had broken her thigh.
