Product Description

From the Publisher

The Broadview Literary Texts series is an effort to represent the ever-changing canon of literature in English by bringing together texts long regarded as classics with valuable, though lesser-known literature.

From the Back Cover

Felicia Hemans was the most widely read woman poet in the nineteenth-century English-speaking world. Broadview’s edition shows why she was one of the few standard poets to be found in middle-class homes on both sides of the Atlantic, despite being routinely disparaged as a “merely” feminine poet. Included here is poetry representative of her entire career, from often-anthologized works, such as “The Homes of England” and “Casabianca,” to several long poems in their entirety, such as “The Forest Sanctuary.” Also included are selections of her prose and letters, a comprehensive introduction, and selections of views and reviews showing her changing and controversial place in culture into the twentieth century. All selections are edited, annotated, and introduced.

By A Customer on June 18 1998
Format: Paperback
Felicia Hemans was the second most popular British poet of the nineteenth century (behind only Byron); it is crucial that her work be read and examined in order to understand our literary history. Hemans's poems are heartfelt and insightful, often focusing on the difficulties and rewards of womanhood but also grappling with loss, politics, and the natural world as did her male contemporaries. Along with the more general reader of poetry, instructors of British literature should give this text serious consideration. The poems are accessible and complicated.
