Of course I had to look her up, and I was surprised to see she was married to explorer John Franklin! (Franklin has been much talked about here in Canada with the discovery of a lost ship.)
As for Eleanor, her poetry is beautiful and smart. I’m glad to have met another poet through your site. 🙂
Yes, she was his first wife! She died young, and a short while later he married one of her good friends.
Franklin and the ship have made the news a bit here, too, although that’s not why I posted this.
You know how much I love “introducing” people to dead writers, especially dead lady writers. I’m glad you like her poetry.
