Felicia Hemans (1793-1835) was one of the most popular and influential poets of the nineteenth century. Her work explores the meaning of being a woman, along with the character and history of the female sex.
Her best known collection is Records of Woman, published in 1828. In the title series of poems, Hemans celebrates the lives, events, and imagined thoughts of women from different cultures and time periods, both reinforcing and challenging traditional stereotypes. Hemans's work stands at the heart of a current, heated debate over the aesthetics of poetry and the reformation of the literary canon. The broader availability of her work contributes to that debate and also to our understanding of the nature of Romanticism.
