Felicia Dorothea Hemans

Hemans  [hĕm´anz], Mrs. Felicia Dorothea. 1793–1835. Poet. Without possessing great force some of her poems have yet taken a firm hold upon popular sympathies. Casabianca, Graves of a Household, and The Pilgrim Fathers are examples. Her verse is graceful and sweet, but not strong. See Memorials of, by H. F. Chorley, 1836. Pub. Lip. Por. Rou.
