About Anna Sewell
30 March 1820 in Norfolk, England, Anna Sewell wrote only one books Black

only on horsedrawn carriages. A fictional autobiography of a high-bred horse,
Black Beauty was not just a novel for children. Anna Sewell's intent behind writing
the book was, to induce kindness, sympathy, and an understanding treatment
of horses. The use of anthropomorphism as a literary device in Black Beauty
stems from her love of horses and her deep resentment against the
ill-treatment of animals. Anna Sewell never married. She died in 1878, five
months after Black Beauty was published.
