Victorian Women Poets

Tess Cosslett
Longman, 1996 - 286 páginas
One of the triumphs of feminist criticism has been to rescue major poets such as Emily Bronte, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Christina Rossetti from neglect. While the essays chosen for this volume focus on these three major figures, work is also included on less well-known poets who have only recently been brought into critical prominence. The introduction clarifies for the reader the themes, problems and preoccupations that inform the criticism and provides a useful guide to the debates surrounding poetry and feminism. The advantages and disadvantages of applying different critical approaches, such as psychoanalytic and historicist, to the understanding of this period and genre are also fully explored. The substantial introduction, headnotes, detailed bibliography and suggestions for further reading will make this book essential reading for students of English, Victorian and Women's Literature, and Feminist Critical Theory.
