Overview

An Anthology of Nineteenth-Century Women's Poetry from France: In English Translation, with French Text

Women poets in nineteenth-century France made important contributions to major stylistic innovations—from the birth of elegiac Romanticism to the inauguration of free verse—and many were prominent in their lifetime, yet only a few are known today, and nearly all have been unavailable in English translation. Of the fourteen poets of this anthology some were wealthy, others struggled in poverty; some were socially conventional, others were cynical or defiant. Their poems range widely in style and idea, from Romantic to Parnassian to symbolist.
