Mary Perdita Robinson

Karin Fernald


Famed for her beauty, Mary Robinson attracted the attention of the future George lV while playing Perdita in Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale.

Notorious for her liaisons with the Prince - and others - Mary was painted by Romney, Gainsborough, Reynolds and Hoppner, and was the subject of lurid caricatures.

However, Mary Robinson was not just an actress and fashion icon. She was also a poet who started to write serious poetry from childhood. In later life, after a crippling accident, Mary would become better known as a romantic poet and friend of Coleridge; a witty and perceptive novelist, and a politically radical columnist, writing under the pseudonym of Tabitha Bramble.

An experienced and entertaining Arts Society accredited lecturer, Karin Fernald's extensive research into diaries and letters brings her lectures to vivid life.
