Eliza Haywood

Haywood, Eliza (Fowler)

Eliza (Fowler) Haywood, 1693?–1756, English author. Separated from her husband, she supported herself and her two children by writing plays and novels. Two of her books, Utopia (1725) and The Court of Carmania (1727), scandalized well-known society figures, and earned her the disapproval of Pope who satirized her in The Dunciad. She also conducted the periodical the Female Spectator (1744–46).
