Jameson, Anna Brownell (Murphy)

Jameson, Anna Brownell (Murphy) jā´məsən [key], 1794–1860, English essayist, b. Dublin. The diary of her travels on the Continent as governess to a wealthy family was later published as The Diary of an Ennuyée (1826). Jameson's works—especially Shakespeare's Heroines (1932)—were popular in her day, but only Sacred and Legendary Art (1848–60 ed. by E. M. Hurll, 1896) had lasting currency.
