Standard Name: Plumptre, Anne
Birth Name: Anne Plumptre
Pseudonym: A Lady
, Romantic-era writer, a radical in politics, produced four novels (one of them a tour de force, an epistolary novel of great power and subtlety), much translation (particularly radical plays), travel writings (including political accounts of revolutionary France and of Ireland, the former a uniquely trenchant and sympathetic analysis), and a remarkable piece of medical history. As this survey suggests, she is a remarkably original as well as a progressive thinker.
