Barrett (1786-1820) first published a poem entitled ' Woman' in 1810; in this version of 1818 ' I determined to rewrite the poem ... I have found so much omission, alteration, and new matter necessary, that the work, as it now stands, may fairly be considered original' - from author's preface, p.8.
