Marion H. Bernstein

Marion Bernstein (1846 - 1906) began contributing poetry to the Saturday penny newspapers shortly after she arrived in Glasgow in 1874. Her poetry often derived from current events, and dealt with social and political topics such as women's rights, temperance, anti-slavery, domestic violence, and the living and working conditions of the poor. She is notable for her fearless attitude as a woman poet in the nineteenth century. Edward H. Cohen is the William R. Kenan, Jr., Professor of English at Rollins College. Anne R.
