This essay considers some of the work published by Anna Kingsford (1846-88) before she reached the age of twenty and by Richard Jefferies (1848-87) before he turned eighteen. It focuses on the year 1866, and explores some unexpected parallels between his writing and hers. What stand revealed are two oddly overlapping careers that were shaped by, but also both rose above, the not always favourable conditions under which in the later nineteenth century the young writer had to operate.
