This volume brings together all the poems by the two women which are available in several 18th-century anthologies. This edition prints the poems in their original format as transcribed from the editions in the Bodleian Library. Notes have been added to explain references contemporary and classical, and a brief introduction sets the poets in their background. Because Laetitia Pilkington published her poems randomly interspersed in her "Memoirs", this edition reproduces where available for each poem her comments from the "Memoirs" which often set the poem in context. A companion volume to "The Poetry of Mary Barber" (Mellen, 1992), this means that virtually all of the poems attributed to these three women are now accessible to scholars and students.
