Her poetry was very popular during her life, but saw a decline after her death. Her life was rather swept under the rug, and it became little known about her affair and illegitimate children. Because of this, later readers did not see the depth in her poems, including Virginia Woolf. Caroline Norton was a social reformer and author. She is known for the scandal that surrounded her separation from her husband, who sued the Prime Minister Lord Melbourne for adultery.
