Abstract

One day in the 1780s, an irate English poet sat down to write a scathing reply to one of her critics. This in itself is not particularly startling: the cantankerous relationships of writers and critics were neither novel nor newsworthy in the eighteenth century, which produced literary quarrels in almost exhausting abundance.
