section false xt7qjq0stw34_1808 xt7qjq0stw34 Jean Ingelow, whose "High Tide of the Coast of Lincolnshire" everyone was quoting during our recent storm that sent the tide up into all manner of unexpected places. lives in an old- , fashioned. cream-colored, stone house in Kent;- ington, set in the midst of extensive grounds, with handsome trees and many beautiful flowers and shrubs. At least, this is her home in Sum- mer time; her lungs are not very strong. and in Winter she occupies a. little cottage in the South of France, on the shores of the Mediterranean, covered with vines and smothered with flowers. She is nearly 60 now, but does not‘look- half her age, her eyes are so bright and her cheeks as 4 ‘ rosy and rounded as a girl's. Of late years she has written very little. ’6 . , But a few moments‘ ride from London is the Remington homcof Jean Ingelow, whose poetry is so familiar to American readers. The. house is an odd one. of cream colored stone and one scarcely knows whether it has ‘ two or three stories. Liberal grounds sur-x: round the house and even in winter show a. gardeners mm. In summer the entire lawn , is bordered and dotted with flowers, for the ‘ poet is a pronounced horticulturlst. During the cold weather a spacious conservatory at: ‘ tschcd to the house shelters the flowers, and; in this hot-house of palms and buds she is, often found by her friends, reading or writ- ing. Flowers bloom. too, in almost every room in the house. on centre tables. mantels and in thebay windows. Jeanlngelow 3 home is that of a. poet, with hooks on every hand ‘ and always within reach wherever you may chance to sit down. The poet is now in mid- dle life, but her face shows not the slightest _ trace of years. Her manner is most. friendly, : her conversation charming and in a most ‘ musical voice. She has a remarkably correct knowledge of American literature, the titles , of all the latest American books beings oken by her with wonderful fluency. Her c arac- ter is eminently practical without a touch of 1 sentimentality. All her literary writing is done in the forenoon; her pen is never putto uper by gaslight. She composes slowly, and Eer verses are often kept by her ior months before they are allowed to go cutter publica- tion. She shuns society, and the most. severe g‘art of the winter is Spent in th South-ob- .rance. 7 - ‘- 5 aft-i ,, 6, HOLLAND VILLAS ROAD, KENSINGTDN,W. % WM JEAN INGELO\V. “ GENTLE JEAN INGELOW,” as she was lovingly called by those who could claim the distinction of her friendship, was probably the most popular woman-poet of her day. In her own country her books ran through a twenty-third edition, and in the United States were sold in excess of 200,000 volumes. Among her intimate friends were the most famous men of her times : Rus- kin, Tennyson, Rossetti, Oliver \Vendell Holmes, and James Russell Lowell. Her first book of poems was published when she was forty-three years old, anonymously at her own expense. L. Dunn": 1 Muslim. Jean lngelow. ENGLISH l’OE’l‘ . 119. JEAN INGELOW.
