Hannah More should have been named Woman of the Year in 1793. Or so I get Karen Swallow Prior to declare. Prior, who has just written a biography of More, is professor of English at Liberty University. She has written a good read of an introduction to the life of Hannah More, Fierce Convictions: The Extraordinary Life of Hannah More — Poet, Reformer, Abolitionist. Prior talks with National Review Online about More — a role model for your daughter, a lost heroine of history, a great talent. — KJL
