Victorian women poets : Emily Brontèe, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Christina Rossetti
Part of the New casebooks series
This New Casebook includes some of the most incisive and searching critical explorations of poetry by Victorian women.
Based on theoretical methods drawn from forms of feminist and historicist inquiry, it reveals how and why the powerful and often popular works of writers such as Emily Bronte, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Christina Rossetti have been subject to radical re-reading and re-valuation since the late 1970s.
Furnished with a detailed introduction about women and poetic identity between 1830 and 1890, the volume includes an extensive bibliography suggesting further reading in what is a rapidly expanding field of criticism.
