About this product
- DescriptionThough rewned in her own time, ted Interregnum and Restoration poet Katherine Philips fell into relative obscurity within a few decades of her sudden death at age 32 and was soon relegated to the margins of the English can. In recent decades, however, critics have begun to rediscover and recognize the importance of Philips's poems and translations. This first scholarly collection devoted solely to the poetry of Katherine Philips is an important milestone, t only in the continuing recovery of Philips's reputation, but in our understanding of her influence in the literary circles of the seventeenth century. As Orvis and Paul explain, Philips's work ranges across genres, modes, and forms; she wrote epithalamia and elegies, pastorals and panegyrics, dialogues and Pindaric odes; she even tried her hand quite successfully at dramatic translation. Her significance as a poet became clear with her appearance in several table print publications of the time, which had rarely included women writers. Though she continued to be cited by writers after her death -- John Keats, for example, highly praised and quoted one of her friendship poems in an 1817 letter -- editions of her poetry fell out of print after 1710, and her work became far less kwn. Until the recent surge in interest in women's writing, Philips, if mentioned at all, was seen by early twentieth century scholars as a mir writer who dealt with rather inconsequential subject matter. The field of Philips scholarship is rich and diverse, however, despite its relative youth. As this collection demonstrates, her work resists attempts to pigeonhole it, bringing together questions of politics, sexual desire and identity, and poetic tradition. These 13 essays from a wide range of scholars are organized around three salient fields of inquiry: cultural poetics and the courtly coterie; invation and influence in poetic and political form; and articulations of female friendship, homoeroticism, and retreat.
