Sarah Fyge Egerton
Robert C. Evans, MeKoi Scott
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2012 - Literary Criticism - 240 pages
Sarah Fyge Egerton (1668-1723) is an intriguing poet who wrote a great deal of poetry during a period when women poets were relatively rare. Alongside The Female Advocate in this volume is Egerton's Poems on Several Occasions, Together with a Pastoral. This is a diverse volume with no obvious pattern or design which nevertheless includes many poems which display real talent and can express surprisingly assertive or unexpected views, suggesting the volume deserves far more analytical attention than it has yet received.
