From Tottel's Miscellany (1557) to the last twentieth-century Oxford Book of English Verse (1999), anthologies have been a prime institution for the preservation and mediation of poetry. The importance of anthologies for creating and re-creating the canon of English poetry, for introducing 'new' programmes of poetry, as a record of changing poetic fashions, audience tastes and reading practices, or as a profitable literary commodity has often been asserted. Despite its impact, however, the poetry anthology in itself has attracted surprisingly little critical interest in Britain or elsewhere in the English-speaking world. This volume is the first publication to explore the largely unmapped field of poetry anthologies in Britain. Essays written from a wide range of perspectives in literary and cultural studies, and the point of view of poets, editors, publishers and cultural institutions, aim to do justice to the typological, functional and historical variety with which this form of publication has manifested itself - from early modern print culture to the postmodern age of the world wide web.

Beginning with Anna Laetitia Barbauld's petition to William Wilberforce and ending with the myth-making Irish writers of the Celtic revival, this major new anthology brings to light diverse female traditions that have, for years, remained in obscurity. While the editors showcase a host of female writers well-known in their day--Felicia Hemans, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and Christina Rossetti--they widen the focus to less familiar works by working-class, colonial, and political writers. The anthology's chronological progression highlights the development of women's verse from the late Romantic period through the Victorian fin-de-siecle. The editors examine the political formations and cultural groupings to which the women belonged, along with the structures which made the development of their work possible: in particular, the numerous minority journals which allowed them a coherent voice. They consider common preoccupations with marriage, slavery, military conflict, national identity, and religious and sexual discourses, and reveal how styles and genres changed across the century. The anthology draws on first editions for texts wherever possible, retaining the spelling and punctuation of the originals for a faithful representation.
