Abstract

The purpose of this thesis is to call the attention of a generation too prone to neglect names that have failed to reach fame to Celia Thaxter, an author who has recorded a little section of New England for others to admire. Celia Thaxter also exemplifies the fact that authorship need not incapacitate a woman for domestic life, for she was a devoted wife and a loving mother, as well as a successful author.
