Description

This study closely examines poems by both well and lesser-known poets as representatives of women in the 19th century. The book asserts that women, in both Romantic and Victorian poems, tend to seek pleasure as their remedy for physical as well as mental pain in their caged environment. The discussion includes William Blake, Sara Coleridge, Lady Caroline Lamb, Maria Logan, and Christina Rossetti along with many others. Several critical methods such as Freudian analysis and Foucauldian interpretation are applied in the attempt to throw light on women's culture in 19th-century Britain.
