Nineteenth-century women poets : an Oxford anthology by Isobel Armstrong( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nineteenth-Century Women Poets is a major new anthology, selecting widely from writings produced in a period that has traditionally been associated with relatively few eminent female poets. Opening with Anna Laetitia Barbauld's petition to William Wilberforce and ending with the myth-making Irish writers of the Celtic revival, Nineteenth-Century Women Poets rediscovers rich and diverse female traditions. The anthology presents the work of over one hundred women writers. Besides featuring distinguished middle-class poets such as Felicia Hemans, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and Christina Rossetti, the collection presents work by authors such as Maria Jane Jewsbury, Augusta Webster, and Michael Field, whose significance is only now becoming apparent. It achieves range and depth by reprinting poems by working-class, colonial, and political poets, in addition to very substantial selections from the work of major figures. The collection draws on first editions wherever possible

Sexual sameness : textual differences in lesbian and gay writing by Joseph Bristow( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1992, Sexual Sameness examines the differing textual strategies male and female writers have developed to celebrate homosexuality. Examining such writers as E.M. Forster, James Baldwin, Sylvia Townsend Warner and Audre Lourde, this wide-ranging book demonstrates how literature has been one of the few cultural spaces in which sexual outsiders have been able to explore forbidden desires.From the humiliating trials of Oscar Wilde to the appalling stigmatisation of people living with AIDS, Sexual Sameness reveals the
Victorian women poets : Emily Brontë, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Christina Rossetti( Book )

17 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This New Casebook includes some of the most incisive and searching critical explorations of poetry by Victorian women. Based on theoretical methods drawn from forms of feminist and historicist inquiry, it reveals how and why the powerful and often popular works of writers such as Emily Bronte, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Christina Rossetti have been subject to radical rereading and revaluation since the late 1970s. Furnished with a detailed introduction about women and poetic identity between 1830 and 1890, the volume includes an extensive bibliography suggesting further reading in what is a rapidly expanding field of criticism

Essays and studies, 2003 : Victorian women poets( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The specially commissioned essays in Victorian Women Poets offer revisionary readings of canonical poets and bring into focus re-discovered writers. The volume both engages critically with the political and aesthetic agenda behind the project of recovery, and also presents a pioneering approach to reading poets who have slipped out of the canon. The work of Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Christina Rossetti is re-assessed and given surprising and innovative literary, political and intellectual contexts that will change the way we interpret their poetry. Writers of emerging significance, such as Theodosia Garrow Trollope, Augusta Webster, Mathilde Blind, Michael Field and Margaret Veley, are given prominence in groundbreaking analysis that situates their writing within the wider debates of the period. The themes interwoven throughout the essays--literary history and canonicity, political poetics, nationhood, print culture, and genre--provide a radically new understanding of Victorian women's poetry that maps an agenda for future research
The fin-de-siècle poem : English literary culture and the 1890s( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The picture of Dorian Gray : an annotated, uncensored edition by Oscar Wilde( Book )

23 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spellbound before his own portrait, Dorian Gray utters a fateful wish. In exchange for eternal youth he gives his soul, to be corrupted by the malign influence of his mentor, the aesthete and hedonist Lord Henry Wotton. The novel was met with moral outrage by contemporary critics who, dazzled perhaps by Wilde's brilliant style, may have confused the author with his creation, Lord Henry, to whom even Dorian protests, 'You cut life to pieces with your epigrams.'. Encouraged by Lord Henry to substitute pleasure for goodness and art for reality, Dorian tries to watch impassively as he brings misery and death to those who love him. But the picture is watching him, and, made hideous by the marks of sin, it confronts Dorian with the reflection of his fall from grace, the silent bearer of what is in effect a devastating moral judgement

17 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Victorian poet : poetics and persona by Joseph Bristow( Book )

15 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The practice of poetry in the Victorian period was characterised by an extreme diversity of styles, preoccupations and subject-matter. This anthology attempts to draw out some of the main focuses of interest in the Victorian poet. No Victorian poet produced an overall theory of poetry, yet all accepted it as a natural vehicle of expression, and for some subjects, in particular sexuality, the only literary mode. Indeed, the sexual question was made even more acute by the sudden phenomenon of the ‘poetess’, and the relation of poetry to gender raised interesting new critical questions. At the same time, the cultural role of the poet came under increasing debate: Victorian poetry was the first contemporary poetry to be studied. This selection of central texts illustrates these pressures on the Victorian practice of poetry, and the introductory remarks suggest ways in which theory can be related to the understanding key poems themselves

This volume offers fresh approaches to well-known works such as The Picture of Dorian Gray while paying serious attention to his lesser known writings and activities, including his earliest attempts at emulating the English Romantics, his editing of Woman's World, and his fascination with anarchism. A detailed introduction by the volume editor ties the essays together and illustrates the distinctive evolution of research on this great writer's extraordinary career"--Jacket
