Due to the quality of this microfilm, it is not entirely clear who the author of this poem is, it appears to be a pseudonym, 'Symposial'. The poem, a 'new version' we are told, describes Sylvia, 'sister of fair Christabel', who is 'immured in modest hiding' (in America). We are also told that Sylvia heaps 'eloquence' on 'unskirted evils', presumably a reference to the suffragettes.
