Anne Steele

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents a selection of Anne Steele's poems, which are part of her Poems on Subjects Chiefly Devotional (1780). Steele developed a talent for poetry as a youth. Her poems reveal a bias for Calvinism and show signs of her self-doubt, uncertainty, depression, and suffering. She published two volumes of her poetry and hymns in 1760 as Poems on Subjects Chiefly Devotional under the pseudonym Theodosia. Within her writings, Steele struggled to find words to express her feelings, especially toward an indescribable God.
