Comments¶ A major collection of Mrs. Norton's poetry, bringing together many of her contributions to literary annuals, to which she was a prolific contributor. Included is a section dedicated to sonnets, with her prefatory definition of the sonnet. Inscribed on the half-title by R. B. Sheridan, Caroline Norton's brother. One correction in the text, probably authorial.
