Lucy Aiken [1781-1864] English writer, niece of Anna Laetitia Barbould. A diligent student of French, Italian and Latin, Aiken had articles and reviews published when she was 16. Her first major work, "Epistles on Women" appeared in 1810 and was "a poem, a bold and arduous study in women's history which opens memorably retelling the adam and eve story and closed with Rachel Russell." Although Aiken produced a short novel, her reputation was gained entirely by her historical works published between 181801843, as the above. These memoirs were designed as a new genre, "the manners of the age, the state of literature, arts & c., interwoven with as slender a thread of political history as will serve to keep other matters in their place." (DNB, Feminst Companion to Literature.)
