Mary Blachford Tighe (1772–1810) was a crucial force in shaping British Romanticism. Her influential six-canto epic, Psyche, or the Legend of Love (1805), along with her shorter poems, engaged the central issues of the period, often in advance of writers now considered canonical. With remarkable vitality and virtuosity, Tighe wrote about the tensions between love and loss, duty and desire, the spiritual and the sensuous, nation and family, and the Irish and the British, all while struggling with the debilitating illness that eventually claimed her life.

This scholarly edition collects for the first time dozens of recently discovered poems, accompanied by Tighe’s own illustrations, and identifies eight false attributions. A historical and biographical introduction from editors Paula R. Feldman and Brian C. Cooney discusses Tighe’s work within a larger social and political context, placing renewed emphasis on the conflicts she experienced as a Methodist with Anglo-Irish roots. Editorial annotations shed new light on Tighe’s life, revealing for the first time, for example, that her songs were performed during her lifetime on the Dublin stage.

Meticulously edited, this volume builds on recent pioneering scholarship to restore and burnish Tighe’s reputation as a major Romantic-era poet.

About the Author:

Paula R. Feldman holds the C. Wallace Martin Chair in English and the Louise Fry Scudder Chair in Liberal Arts at the University of South Carolina. She is the editor of British Women Poets of the Romantic Era: An Anthology and the coeditor of The Journals of Mary Shelley. Brian C. Cooney is an associate professor of English at Gonzaga University.

Review:

"Mary Tighe's work is every bit as important as the editors argue. This complete collection of poetry, as well as the supplementary writings contained within, is a great boon to the scholarship of the period."

(Jerome McGann, University of Virginia)

"This anthology is not just a gift to scholars of Mary Tighe, a group whose numbers will no doubt swell as a result of Paula Feldman and Brian Cooney’s groundbreaking work. It is also a gift to any reader who cares about the history of poetry, the history of women, the history of Ireland, or the literature of the Romantic period. The Collected Poetry of Mary Tighe, from its authoritative introduction, its raft of previously unpublished poems, and its careful editing and copious annotations, is a massive contribution exquisitely presented. Mary Tighe’s technically stunning verse has long deserved careful editorial treatment."

(Devoney Looser, Arizona State University)

"... Those interested in English literature will want this extremely well-annotated edition of a poet whose star is, after long neglect, on the rise. Highly recommended."

(Choice)

"... beautiful, indispensable new edition of her poetry... The Collected Poetry of Mary Tighe is a major editorial feat. As a scholar deeply committed to the recovery of women writers of the Romantic period, I am exceedingly grateful for this first-rate scholarly edition of Mary Tighe's poetry."

(Review 19)

"Academic libraries, especially those with strong English and Women’s Studies departments, will have readers interested in the work contained in this volume."

(American Reference Books Annual)

"Thanks to efforts to recover female poets... Tighe is now read and taught, and there are three modern editions of her work. The most recent of these is the scholarly edition published by Johns Hopkins, which collects more than 120 poems, some published for the first time, and includes a critical introduction, explanatory notes and appendices... Its introduction provides a compelling and thorough biography, and the text itself is the most complete corpus of an unduly marginalized poet."

(Times Literary Supplement)

"The editors of this beautifully presented and meticulously researched new volume describe Tighe in their introductory essay as a ‘crucial force in shaping British Romanticism’ and both the poetic and editorial material included here will play a significant part in re-establishing her place within late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century literary contexts. Paula Feldman and Brian Cooney’s detailed introductory essay and scrupulous editorial notes do an impressive job of resituating Tighe and re-evaluating her work, making this an essential text for scholars of both Tighe and Romantic-period literature more generally... The body of poetry presented here reveals shared interests and concerns with canonical poets as well as with those who have already begun to challenge our canons and understanding of Romanticism, and clearly indicates that Tighe does indeed need to be situated ‘not at the periphery but at the very center of what we have come to call Romanticism.’"

(Modern Language Review)

"The volume is a signal accomplishment, and one that may justifiably be called definitive."

(The Wordsworth Circle)
