Irish Women Poets of the Romantic Period: An Electronic Edition


ACLS Fellowship Program




As part of an electronic textbase of nearly 100 volumes of poetry by some 54 Irish women published during the Romantic period (c.1775-1835), this project involves preparing (1) a comprehensive scholarly critical and historical introduction to the lives and works of Irish women poets of the period, (2) introductory critical essays on each of the poets, and (3) full scholarly apparatus, including bibliographical, for the project as a whole. The project is a major contribution to Irish literary history that recovers many texts by historically neglected writers.
