This growing collection consists of poetry written by women in English and published from 1800 to 1900. The collection includes a few titles published in the early 20th century (1901-1919), in instances where the same poet published works in the 19th century. While the emphasis is on poetry published in Britain, works published in the United States are also included.
Embracing a wide range of styles, written by women whose station in life ranged from dairymaid to grand lady, the collection includes topics such as religion, ancient Greek and Roman myth, daily life, romance, nature, motherhood, and local and national history. Each digitized volume is searchable by keyword and is linked to a bibliographical record in Baylor's online catalog, BearCat.More information about the 19th Century Women's Poetry Collection can be found at the Armstrong Browning Library & Museum.
