“She did not cultivate the graces which preside over the person and its carriage. But, on the other hand, she was a person of very remarkable endowments intellectually…Her knowledge of literature was irregular, and thoroughly unsystematic. She was content to be ignorant of many things; but what she knew and had really mastered lay where it could not be disturbed – in the temple of her own most fervid heart.” (Thomas De Quincey in Reminiscenes of the Lake Poets, 1961
