This feminist recuperation of the work of numerous women across the Romantic and Victorian periods presented in this monograph puts not only the canon of poetry under interrogation but also periodisation. Using a number of previously unknown women poets, and a new elaboration of the significance of the work of Rosamund Marriott Watson, this study intersects with some of the most exciting current debates in nineteenth-century studies, around, for example, the uses of sentimentality and emotion, material culture, the archive, and parody.

Synopsis : The Romance of the Lyric in Nineteenth-Century Women's Poetry: Experiments in Form offers a new account of the nature of the lyric as nineteenth-century women poets developed the form. It offers fresh assessments of the imaginative and aesthetic complexity of women's poetry. The monograph seeks to redefine the range and cultural significance of women's writing using the work of poets who have not, heretofore, been part of critical accounts of nineteenth-century lyric poetry. These new voices are set beside new readings of the poetry of established figures: for example, Christina Rossetti's Goblin Market and Augusta Webster's "Medea in Athens" and "Circe." The monograph draws substantially on the poetry of Rosamund Marriott Watson - who was lost to literary history before the restoration of her oeuvre through the scholarly and critical work of Professor Linda K. Hughes - to make the case that once neglected and lost voices provide new ways of determining the cultural centrality of women and the poetry they produced in one of the richest periods of poetic experimentation in the Western literary tradition. This monograph contends that Watson's poetry and prose provide new ways of analyzing the complex and frequently transgressive nature of the lyric engagement of women with folklore and myth and with the growing understanding in the nineteenth century of the fragmented, fluid self in general and of the writer in particular.
Critique: O'Brien's book is exemplary in approaching nineteenth-century ideas about poetic genre historically rather than imposing our own generic categories; and it breaks new ground in emphasizing the role of women writers in nineteenth century genre thinking.
