Elizabeth Barrett Browning Summary


Elizabeth Barrett Browning by Marjorie Stone

Drawing on previously neglected manuscripts, this study deconstructs the gender and genre ideologies obscuring the achievement of one of England's major women poets, Elizabeth Barrett Browning. The author resituates Elizabeth Barrett Browning in her cultural context, demonstrating her prominence in 19th-century literary history and Victorian feminist discourse. Close readings reveal the allusive 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.
