Nineteenth-century Women's Writing in Wales: Nation, Gender and Identity
Nineteenth-Century Women’s Writing in Wales argues that the way in which women came to perceive and represent themselves as Welsh was profoundly affected by the gender ideology of the Romantic and Victorian periods. This volume introduces the reader to a number of critically-neglected Welsh women authors at work during the years 1780 to 1900, tracing the development of the Welsh nation as its women, in particular, imagined and helped to create it. Focusing on the rediscovery and inclusion of many forgotten writers, Nineteenth-Century Women’s Writing in Wales analyzes the development of Wales as a gendered nation and will be of interest to scholars of gender and literary history alike.
