Dictionary of Literary Biography on Caroline Anne Bowles Southey

In its neglect of both her personal and artistic virtues, literary history has not been kind to Caroline Anne Bowles.

At the time of her wedding to Southey, her friend of twenty years, she was at the height of her popularity as a poet and storyteller. Although she was never as celebrated as Felicia Hemans or Mary Russell Mitford, her poems and tales have much in common with theirs in tone and subject, and British readers of the 1820s and 1830s relished the pathos and piquancy of Caroline Bowles's writings.
