  • Abstract: In The Memoirs of Colonel Hutchinson, Lucy Hutchinson not only built a vibrant vindication of her late beloved husband, but also wrote an impressive account of the English Civil War. The genre demanded that this remarkably talented and knowledgeable woman remain self-effaced behind the man she praised. Here we find her, however, as much self-enhanced as self-effaced in the guise of the great latinist she was, author of the first complete translation of Lucretius in verse.
