Approaches to Teaching British Women Poets of the Romantic Period
Stephen C. Behrendt, Harriet Kramer Linkin
Modern Language Association of America, 1997 - Literary Criticism - 207 pages
The contributors to this volume have undertaken, in the words of the editors, "the liberating and invigorating task of redrawing the landscape of the Romantic poetry," and in twenty-six essays they share their experiences and their innovations.
Like other volumes in the MLA's Approaches to Teaching World Literature series, this collection is divided into two parts. The first, "Materials," surveys the available primary sources, including recent editions and anthologies, journals, and online databases, and examines the burgeoning criticism. The essays in the second part, "Approaches," discuss teaching the poets individually and alongside other writers; exploring their work from various critical and theoretical perspectives; presenting the authors in classroom contexts such as first-year and survey courses; and using archival and technological resources - from nineteenth-century literary annuals to hypertext programs - to enhance classroom discussion.
