Author Bio for Addison, Joseph
Joseph Addison (1672-1719) was an English poet and essayist. He was born in Wiltshire and educated at Charterhouse School. In partnership with Richard Steele, he perfected the essay as a literary form in his contributions to the journals, "The Tatler" and "The Spectator". His prose style was the model for English writing well into the 18th century. His comments on manners and morals were influential in forming the middle class ideal of a dispassionate, tolerant, Christian citizen of the world. "The Campaign" (1704) celebrating a British military victory at Blenheim and "The Spacious Firmament on High" (1712) are two of his most famous poems. (Benét's Readers' Encyclopedia)
Author Bio for Inchbald, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Inchbald (née Simpson) (1753–1821) was an English novelist, actress, and dramatist.
Between 1784 and 1805 she had nineteen of her comedies, sentimental dramas, and farces (many of which were translations from the French) performed at London theatres. Eighteen of her plays were published, though she wrote several more; the exact number is in dispute though most recent commentators claim between 21 and 23. Her two novels have been frequently reprinted. She also did considerable editorial and critical work. Her literary start began with writing for The Artist and Edinburgh Review. A four-volume autobiography was destroyed before her death upon the advice of her confessor, but she left some of her diaries. The latter are currently held at the Folger Shakespeare Library and an edition was recently published.
Her play Lovers' Vows (1798) was featured by Jane Austen in her novel Mansfield Park.--Wikipedia.
