British Victorian Women’s Periodicals explores themes and patterns of poetry publication in a variety of women's periodicals published throughout the Victorian era to answer questions about taste, style, and the significance of poetry to our understanding of women’s lives in the nineteenth century.  Ledbetter shows how the periodical’s advice about maintaining or acquiring social respectability through appropriate fashion, good behavior, and regulation of the household is seamlessly integrated with poetry that aimed to inspire, teach, and cultivate feeling. This book questions traditional evaluations of nineteenth-century sentimental poetry, and argues for a consideration of women’s poetry within its own cultural milieu.
