Ingelow, Jean

▪ British poet and novelist
born March 17, 1820, Boston, Lincolnshire, Eng.
died July 20, 1897, London

      English poet and novelist popular in her own day and remembered for her narrative poem “The High Tide on the Coast of Lincolnshire, 1571” (1863), which reveals considerable command of language and a power to evoke feeling.

      The friend of many leading painters and writers, Ingelow was modest and retiring and spent much of her earnings from writing on charitable works. Poems (1863) contains her best work; also of note are a novel, Sarah de Berenger (1879), and a children's book, Mopsa the Fairy (1869; reprinted 1964).
