About this book
Drawing on previously neglected manuscripts, this new study deconstructs the gender and genre ideologies obscuring the achievement of England's first major woman poet. Marjorie Stone resituates Elizabeth Barrett Browning in her cultural context, demonstrating her prominence in nineteenth-century literary history and Victorian feminist discourse. Close readings illuminate the rich intertextuality of Barrett Browning's works, her revisions of the Romantics, her innovations in a range of genres and her creation of emancipatory strategies for the woman writer.
