At her death in 1825, Anna Letitia Barbauld was considered one of the great writers of her time. Distinguished as a poet and essayist, she was also in innovator in children’s literature, an eloquent supporter of liberal politics, and a literary critic of stature. This edition includes a generous selection of her poetry and the first comprehensive body of her prose in more than a century, with essays—some never before reprinted—on literature, religion, education, prejudice, women’s fashions, and class conflict.

Página 175 - Life ! we've been long together, Through pleasant and through cloudy weather ; 'Tis hard to part when friends are dear ; Perhaps 'twill cost a sigh, a tear; Then steal away, give little warning, Choose thine own time ; Say not Good night, but in some brighter clime Bid me Good morning.
Página 82 - Thou tread'st upon enchanted ground ; Perils and snares beset thee round ; Beware of all ; guard every part ; But most, the traitor in thy heart.
Página 185 - And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven : and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it...
Página 80 - Although the fig tree shall not blossom, * neither shall fruit be in the vines. The labor of the olive shall fail, * and the fields shall yield no meat ; The flock shall be cut off from the fold, * and there shall be no herd in the stalls : Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, * I will joy in the God of my salvation.
Página 189 - Was it in order to raise a fortune, that you consumed the sprightly hours of youth in study and retirement? Was it to be rich that you grew pale over the midnight lamp, and distilled the sweetness from the Greek and Roman spring?
Página 67 - And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.
Página 244 - God's ; • his hand is always stretched out over us. He made sleep to refresh us when we are weary : he made night that we might sleep in quiet.
Página 220 - This day is called the feast of Crispian. He that outlives this day, and comes safe home, Will stand a tip-toe when this day is named, And rouse him at the name of Crispian. He that shall live this day, and see old age, Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours, And say "Tomorrow is Saint Crispian." Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars, And say "These wounds I had on Crispin's day.
Página 80 - PRAISE to God, immortal praise, For the love that crowns our days ; Bounteous Source of every joy ! Let thy praise our tongues employ : 2 For the blessings of the field ; For the stores the gardens yield ; For the vine's exalted juice; For the generous olive's use.
