The poem The Desert [or Deserted] Isle (1822), by "A Lady," has often been catalogued as a separate collection of poetry. It is, in fact, a single poem that appears as pages 116-129 of The Widow of the Rock and Other Poems (1824). Its appearance in catalogues suggests that the poem was published separately—perhaps as a broadsheet or pamphlet—in 1822.
