British Women Poets of the Romantic Era: An Anthology
Paula R. Feldman
JHU Press, Dec 7, 2000 - Literary Criticism - 920 pages
During the Romantic period, women such as Joanna Baillie, Anna Letitia Barbauld, Felicia Hemans, Letitia Elizabeth Landon, Mary Robinson, Anna Seward, Charlotte Smith, and Mary Tighe were among the most highly respected and widely read practitioners of the art of poetry. In fact, Hemans was one of the bestselling authors of the nineteenth century, and Baillie was the foremost playwright of her time.
In British Women Poets of the Romantic Era, Paula R. Feldman introduces modern readers to the range and diversity of women's poetic expression, making available more texts by more women poets of the Romantic era than have ever been collected in a single book in the twentieth century. Feldman provides detailed introductions for each of the sixty-two poets, chronicling their lives, poetic careers, and critical reputations. This groundbreaking volume not only documents the richness of their literary contributions but also changes our thinking about the poetry of the English Romantic period.

It is a beautiful collection of poems by a myriad of gifted women from a wonderfully endearing period. Along with the poems, there are brief biographies of each poet that allows you to get a peak into the inspiration behind their work. I read my book with great frequency. My only regret is that I didn't get it in a hard cover.
