Poems 1773, Edited by Lisa Vargo and Allison Muri
McCarthy and Kraft (253n) explain the poem was written when some proposed theatricals by the students at Warrington were prohibited by the tutors and her brother John Aikin published a response in the Essays on Song-Writing (1772). When Barbauld and her husband had their own school, she directed student plays.
