Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Anne Plumptre (1760-1818) was an English writer and translator. She was born in Norwich. She and her sister, Annabella [Bell] Plumptre (1769-1838), daughters of Robert Plumptre, became active in the Enfield circle, a local group of literati. Later she became involved in politics during the period of the French Revolution. She published her own fiction, travel writing and political enquiry, as well as many translations of letters, travel writing, drama, and other genres. She was the second daughter of Dr. Robert Plumptre, who became President of Queens' College, Cambridge. Her brother James Plumptre was known as a dramatist. She was well educated in foreign languages, particularly in German. She began writing articles in periodicals. The freethinking Alexander Geddes encouraged her. Her first book, a novel in two volumes, entitled Antoinette, was published anonymously, but was acknowledged in a second edition.show more
