Smith, Charlotte Turner. The Poems of Charlotte Smith. Edited by Stuart Curran. NY, Oxford University Press, 1993

Although known primarily for her novels, Charlotte Turner Smith also was a successful poet and natural history writer. Her poems show that she possessed much technical knowledge of botany and have many specifics about plants. It was entirely customary, and very typical, for women writers about the natural world to use the verse form in this period.
