Mary Whateley Darwall's poem 'Female Friendship (Mira and Monimia), addressed to Miss M-, of C-y' can be best understood by analyzing it in its original context when it was first published in 1776. The intriguing poem, which appeared in 'The Westminster Magazine' in Apr 1776, consists of 84 lines that opens its topic in a six-line general statement to Monimia. Darwall speaks of self-sacrificing heterosexual friendships in the poem and criticizes those who are incapable of cultivating such relationships.
