Mary Robinson's work has begun again to assume a central place in discussions of Romanticism. A writer of the 1790's-a decade which saw the birth of Romanticism, revolution, and enormous popular engagement with political ideas-Robinson was acknowledged in her time as a leading poet. Her writing exhibits great variety: charm, theatricality, and emotional resonance are all characteristics Robinson displays. She was by turns a poet of sensibility, a poet of popular culture, a chronicler of the major events of the time, and a participant in some of its chief aesthetic innovations. This long-awaited collection is the first critical edition of her poems.

"This rich and varied selection of poems, letters and reviews, centered and guided by Judith Pascoe's rich and sympathetic scholarship, amply illustrates why Mary Robinson is so crucial a figure for understanding the development of English verse between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. With its range and inclusiveness, its authentic artistic claims, and its scholarly weight, Mary Robinson: Selected Poems is an edition to be universally celebrated as repaying a long overdue debt, and with generous interest. Even in Broadview's exemplary list of recovered literature, it is a standout, a truly major accomplishment."--Stuart Curran "Mary Robinson was one of the most significant authors of the Romantic era; her poetic vision is in many ways a counterpoint to that of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth. At last, this expertly edited, well researched and affordable edition makes Robinson's innovative and influential poetry accessible again to a wide audience. It is a superb selection which gives a fully rounded view of Robinson's poetic production."--Paula Feldman "Mary Robinson was one of the most significant authors of the Romantic era; her poetic vision is in many ways a counterpoint to that of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth.
