English Writer
1802 – 1852 A.D.

Sara Coleridge, an English writer, only daughter of Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

In 1829 she married her cousin Henry Nelson Coleridge, and later published Pretty Lessons for Little Children which was primarily designed for her own children, but speedily passed through several editions.

On the death of her father, her husband was appointed his literary executor, and after the death of her husband she took upon herself the whole of the important duty.

She edited the Aids to Reflection, Notes on Shakespeare and the Dramatists and Essays on his own Times, and the elaborate discourses on weight matters which she affixed to these works manifest both her erudition and her critical and logical ability.
