Standard Name: Alma-Tadema, Laurence
Birth Name: Laurence Alma-Tadema
Indexed Name: Laurence Alma Tadema
Used Form: Lawrence Alma-Tadema
LAT wrote in many genres during the late nineteenth and the early twentieth centuries. She contributed to various periodicals (including The Yellow Book) and published her own collections of stories and poems, as well as two novels, songs (usually to a specific musical score), and volumes or pamphlets of drama and translation. She also edited a periodical. Her characteristic tone is one of intense emotion, but in prose and verse she has the gift of compression. Many of her works were privately printed and are now very rare. Research on her is urgently needed.
