Short biography
Hannah More was educated by her father Jacob More, a teacher, and was noted for her knowledge of mathematics and several languages, including French, Italian, Spanish, and Latin. In 1773-74, she moved to London, where she wrote several extremely successful plays. She was a member of the literary and intellectual circle of women known as the bluestockings, and her works were much admired by Horace Walpole. Her best known poem "Bas Bleu" (1786) concerned her literary coterie. Hannah More later became a religious Evangelical and an abolitionist, and turned to producing moral tracts such as Village Politics by Will Chip (1793) and the series Cheap Repository Tracts (1795–1798).
