Inhaltsangabe: Angers, Fantasies and Ghostly Fears is a ground-breaking study of writers all-too-often ignored by mainstream literary history. It will be essential reading for all those interested in the literary history of Welsh writing in English, women's writing in the nineteenth century, and the discourse of insular imperialism. Catherine Brennan analyses the work of seven Welsh women poets from a relatively neglected period in Welsh literary studies, the nineteenth century. Each of the writers considered, from Jane Cave and Felicia Hemans to Anna Walter Thomas, wrote in a period of rapid and intense social change, yet each maintained her own particular and deeply held connection with Wales. The author argues that although these writers are doubly marginalized by their gender and nationality from dominant cultural discourses, they nevertheless articulate highly significant questions of poetic identity and authority. Using a range of theoretical perspectives, she shows how consciousness of national identity and poetic representation intersect in this period and suggests that the work of these writers, taken as a whole, opens up new ways of understanding class, gender and 'Welshness' in the nineteenth century.
Rezension: ' ... fascinating and timely study ... Brennan is particularly adept at drawing out the contradictions in the very different experiences of Welshness dramatized in the poetry she explores. She is also to be applauded for her sensitivity to the complexity of the material discussed'. (New Welsh Review) 'The text is enhanced by extensive, lucid endnotes;the Selected Biography is helpful and well ordered, and the book has a striking cover design., 'The Birth of Light'. Brennan has produced a carefully researched and thoughtful account of seven poets, which should be of interest to students of literature, history, religion, cultural studies, and women's studies.'
