Sample text

In 1793, Sins of Government, Sins of the Nation and Food for National Penitence complemented not only each other but also Milton’s 1659 Treatise on Civil Power in Ecclesiastical Causes. To label the period from 1774 to 1802 the “reform and education” stage of the Aikin-Barbauld relationship is of course to generate a false impression of discreteness, for the concerns of reform and education permeated Anna’s and John’s thought and writing throughout their lives. To use that label is also to be somewhat redundant, for the writing aimed at reform was also meant to educate audiences; that written to educate young persons carried with it the corollary aim of social reform.

Borrowing the cultivating metaphor from her own Hymns in Prose, Barbauld thereafter contends with Burke, in language highly nuanced. Having taken up a seemingly objective stance regarding “public 26 R o m a n t i c L i t e r a r y Fa m i l i e s functionaries” and “reformers,” the former needing to be regarded with “wholesome suspicion,” she offers a glimpse into the mind of the latter: Reformers, conceiving themselves, as of a more enlightened class than the bulk of mankind, are likewise apt to forget the deference due to them [public functionaries].

Britons make a traffic of slavery—tear innocent men by the basest of artifices from their native soil—from all they hold B a r b a u l d a n d A i k i n ’s S i b l i n g Pa m p h l e t s 23 dear—carry them into irons to other Britons, who buy them like vile cattle, and wear out their wretched lives in the most corroding servitude! This foul crime, exposed, avowed, undefended, but still permitted, will sit heavy on the soul of Britain in the day of her adversity. Hide thy face, Queen of Isles, in burning blushes—wash out with repentant tears thy deep stains—mourn in sackcloth—mortify with real fastings—and dare not again to lift thy head towards the throne of Divine mercy, till thou hast ceased to be cruel and unjust!
