Lady Louisa Stuart, writing in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, published almost nothing deliberately. It was mostly after her death that her writings filtered into print. Her poems show an acute and original mind. Her letters and memoirs show, besides their fluency and charm, the powers of a literary critic and cultural historian.
