Standard Name: Hutchinson, Lucy

LH has been long known as the author of memoirs of her husband which are also a significant historical account of the Englich Civil War. Her petitions and religious writings were also known, though less read than the memoir. With the late-twentieth-century appearance in print of further works (original poems, and verse translations or paraphrases from Lucretius and from the Bible), she is beginning to assume the appearance of a major poet.
