Description
The poet Katherine Philips was called The Matchless Orinda in her day and was well known for her works, both personal and political. She was a staunch Royalist (a supporter of Charles I and his son during the English Civil Wars) and wrote poetic defenses of the monarchy. She was also part of a literary coterie, in which she and her friends had code names. Philips herself was Orinda, her husband Antenor, and her friend Anne Owen Lucasia. She is perhaps best known today for her passionate poems celebrating female friendship. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)
