Elizabeth Singer Rowe, the Poetess of Frome: A Study in Eighteenth-century English Pietism
Herbert Lang, 1973 - 265 Seiten
This work is a study on the Somerset poetess and recluse, Elizabeth Singer Rowe. It attempts to depict the poetess's life and character against the literary and philosophical backgrounds of the early 18th century. Her life and literary output are viewed as expressions of pre-romanticism and sentimentality, as well as the tradition of English enthusiasm and pietism. Early works are analyzed and quoted in detail, and references are made to key figures of the age.
