British Women Poets of the Romantic Era An Anthology

While the canon has, among the Romantics, paid attention almost exclusively to men (Shelley, Blake, Wordsworth, etc.), there were a number of talented and important female poets whose work was an integral part of the Romantic era. Felicia Hermans, Mary Robinson, and Charlotte Smith, among others, were widely read, critically respected, and influential among their fellow poets. This collection, then, is a crucial recovery of a body of work that has heretofore been unavailable in one volume. It would be impossible to give an appropriate amount of detail in this brief review, but an excerpt from Ann Radcliffe's transcendent poem "The Sea-Nymph" will perhaps suggest the depth of the worlds to be discovered in British Women Poets of the Romantic Era. "And with my sister-nymphs I sport, / Till the broad sun looks o'er the floods; / Then, swift we seek our crystal court, / Deep in the wave, 'mid Neptune's woods." [via]
