Seward’s unrecorded vocabulary

Note: pages in our 18c Leverhulme study section were originally published on the website in 2010. Links have since been checked and updated.

Our sample of Seward’s poetry is based on two publications, her Elegy on Captain Cook: To Which is Added, an Ode to the Sun (Seward 1780) and Llangollen Vale, With Other Poems (Seward 1796). Words and senses used by Seward which are currently unrecorded in the OED can be seen in the pages listed below.
