9780199602889: Elizabeth Barrett Browning: 21st-Century Oxford Authors

The Barrett-Browning volume in the 21st Century Oxford Authors series offers a comprehensive selection of the works of one of the nineteenth-century's most famous poets. The revaluation of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's work by feminist scholars has made her an established (indeed standard) author in university syllabuses in Britain and in America. Yet the emphasis upon her contribution to a female tradition has tended to rigidify Barrett Browning's contribution to English literary culture in the nineteenth century, just as her popular image as ringleted-invalid-turned-romantic-heroine served sentimentally to eclipse her role as a literary pioneer. This edition complements or corrects these emphases by being the first edition dedicated to witnessing the progress and growth of the poet's creative direction - from her juvenilia through to her major achievements and beyond. In keeping with the aims of the series, the selection honours the original sequencing of the published works as the best means of indicating the contours of Barrett Browning's poetic career. Thus, following fairly limited selections from published juvenilia, The Battle of Marathon (1820) and 'An Essay on Mind' and Other Poems (1826) and from 'Prometheus Bound' and Miscellaneous Poems (1833), there are more extensive selections from 'The Seraphim' and Other Poems (1838), from Poems 1844 and from Poems 1850 including the full text of Sonnets from the Portuguese. Substantial excerpts from Casa Guidi Windows (1851) is followed by the full text of Aurora Leigh (1857) and by selections from the posthumous Last Poems (1862). These individual sections are supplemented by careful selections (also chronologically ordered) from the correspondence, including the courtship letters with Robert Browning, and, where applicable, from poetry unpublished in the nineteenth century. The edition comes with full scholarly apparatus (introduction, chronology, explanatory notes), though it follows the series policy of recording only significant variants between editions.

About the Author:


Dr. Josie Billington is a specialist in Victorian Literature who has published widely on nineteenth-century fiction and poetry -- Faithful Realism (2002), (ed) Elizabeth Gaskell's Wives and Daughters (2006), Eliot's Middlemarch (2008), Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Shakespeare (2012), (ed) Margaret Oliphant Novellas (2013) -- and on interdisciplinary medical humanities research in the area of reading and health.

He is editor of The Reader magazine.

Review:


"This volume is a comprehensive new edition of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's poetry that will prove indispensable for students and established scholars alike. The book provides a thorough summary of Barrett Browning's literary achievements, together with useful biographical details. The edition is balanced in the sense that space and attention are given to Barrett Browning's early work and juvenilia...this valuable edition also offers a broad view of her literary achievements, enabling us to perceive how her poetic skill and thematic concerns developed from the earliest stages of her career, through her marriage to Robert Browning, up until her death in 1861...This volume is certain to enrich scholarship on Barrett Browning by offering an expanded view of the career and concerns of this truly great Victorian poet." --Sarah Parker, The Modern Language Review
