    One thought on “Victorian Women Poets: An Anthology”

    1. This is a beautiful collection from the best, simply wonderful Victorian women writers. The poems are revealing about the patriarchal era - but perhaps not in the way that readers may expect. Additionally, Leighton offers intelligent, incisive and reflective thought that will ignite any reader's own critique and imagination. This anthology is a must for anybody interested in the Victorian era, or in women writers.
