Anna Jane Vardill

Standard Name: Vardill, Anna Jane
AJV was an early nineteenth-century poet. She published only two collections; most of her work appeared in the European Magazine, with which her strong connection lasted from 1809 until her marriage in 1822. She wrote most genres popular at the time: occasional poems, narratives (often in series), elegies, and poems about public events and developments in science.
Photograph of a drawing of Anna Jane Vardill, shown from the waist up, wearing a black dress that crosses at the bust, and has short puffed sleeves. Her dark hair is pulled back, with braids wrapped around the front and curls at the top. Behind her is a large column and a vase carved with people's faces displayed on a pedestal. The circular photograph is contained within a gold frame, and the name "Mrs. Niven" is written underneath it.
