Pseudonym: Florenz
Author of three volumes of poetry published in the second half of the nineteenth century, LCE frequently saw her work linked to that of other Scottish writers. Her poems draw on religious and mythological themes, and often focus on women in demanding situations. Some resemble the work of her English contemporary Augusta Webster in their use of dramatic form to explore female subjectivity, and suggest at least a proto-feminist sensibility.
