Nicky Didicher (ed)
Simon Fraser University


This chapbook anthology of poems by female-identifying Romantic-era poets writing in English is the product of a senior-year seminar in English literature at Simon Fraser University in the Summer term of 2020. Each student found a poet and poem that interested them and contributed a section to the chapbook: each section contains a headnote with biographical/other contextual information, an edited version of the poem, and explanatory footnotes.
