Summary
"In this innovative look at late nineteenth-century urban poetry, Ana Parejo Vadillo provides a detailed and largely unexamined history of the poetics of late-Victorian London to suggest a new account of urban aestheticism and metropolitan life. A study of the London-based women poets Amy Levy, Alice Meynell, 'Graham R. Tomson' (Rosamund Marriott Watson) and Michael Field, this book unearths women poets' remarkably sophisticated engagement with the urban experience in an original way."--BOOK JACKET
