Recovers the lost lives and poems of British women poets of the Romantic era. This title reveals the range and diversity of their writings, offering perspectives on the work of dozens of women whose poetry has long been ignored or marginalized in traditional literary history.


Stephen C. Behrendt is the George Holmes Distinguished Professor of English at the University of Nebraska and co-editor of Romanticism and Women Poets: Opening the Doors of Reception and Approaches to Teaching British Women Poets of the Romantic Period.


The question that literary intelligentsia ask in judging a work is whether it advances study in the field, and this one most assuredly does... It builds on the best research and offers a venue for more. And it teaches us that before Hollywood, Lifetime, YouTube and Twitter, writers-especially poets-were rock stars of the day; the women under consideration here worked to participate in public discourse over concerns that shaped communal thought and life. Internet Review of Books Its democratic project is to supplement our understanding of British Romantic poetry by shining a light into dark library corners and bringing out unknown work by women... Unquestionably a valuable addition to literary historicism. An introduction to numerous obscure authors, it also provides sensitive in-depth reading of selected verse and relevant comparisions with poems by their more visible female and male contemporaries. Times Literary Supplement 2009 The range of this book encourages and facilitates future research and commentary. Highly recommended. Choice 2009 Behrendt's commitment to his neglected trove inspires admiration. -- Mary A. Favret New Books on Literature 19 2009 Superb historical contextualisation of literature alongside an original argument that also makes for a provocative work... Behrendt highlights the uniquely personal relationship women are able to establish with readers as opposed to their male contemporaries' formality. By comparing personal and public elegiac poetry, Behrendt demonstrates the powerful voices of ordinary women who engaged with public issues. Romanticism and Victorianism on the Net 2009 Sharp and sophisticated exploration. -- Aurora Barsalou Cercles 2010
