Hide Profile

Poet Adelaide Anne Procter was born in London and raised in a literary environment that helped nurture and develop her own budding talent. Most of her poems were published in Charles Dicken's magazines, often under a pseudonym. Her life was marked by her conversion to Roman Catholicism, and by her devotion to women's rights. Although much of her verse seems simplistic and sentimental by today's standards, she was perhaps the most popular living poet of her day.
