Romantic Hellenism and Women Writers

Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan UK, Jan 31, 2013 - Literary Criticism - 167 pages
Examining popular contexts of Greek revivalism associated with women, Comet challenges the masculine narrative of English Classicism by demonstrating that it thrived in non-male spaces, as an ephemeral ideal that betrayed a distrust of democratic rhetoric that ignored the social inequities of the classical world.
