In eighteenth-century England, aspiring female authors were more than likely to encounter a formidable range of obstacles. These ranged from the lack of a classical education to assumptions about gender roles and limited access to the public sphere. Publishers were ready to do business with female readers, but not with female writers. One niche presenting opportunities for female authorship was provided by eighteenth-century periodicals which published poetry written by women on a regular basis. In this seminar, we shall investigate poems published in this and in other ways, considering them in the context of relevant developments in eighteenth-century literature and gender roles. You will learn a great deal not only about eighteenth-century literature, but also about the world of women in eighteenth-century England.

Please buy: Roger Lonsdale (ed.), Eighteenth-Century Women Poets (Oxford University Press, 2009, ISBN: 9780192827753). Additional texts will be made accessible.
