About this product
- DescriptionOpening with the revolution-era debates of the 1790s, Borderlines reads Romantic genders across a mobile syntax, tuned to such figures as the stylized feminine poetess, the aberrant masculine woman, male poets deemed feminine or unmanly, the campy male effeminate, and hapless or strategic cross-dressers of both sexes. With fresh readings of the works, careers, and volatile receptions of Mary Wollstonecraft, Felicia Hemans, M. J. Jewsbury, Lord Byron, and John Keats, Susan Wolfson shows how senses (and sensations) of gender shape and get shaped by sign systems that prove arbitrary, fluid, and susceptible of lively transformation.
- Author BiographySusan J. Wolfson is also the author of Formal Charges: The Shaping of Poetry in British Romanticism (Stanford, 1997; 1999), awarded Outstanding Book of the Year by the American Conference on Romanticism.
