Description - The Collected Poems of Amelia Alderson Opie by Shelley King

The Collected Poems of Amelia Alderson Opie is the first annotated scholarly edition of the poetic corpus of Amelia Opie (1769-1853), a woman writer who made a significant contribution to literary culture in Britain during the Romantic and early Victorian periods. Bringing together poems from a variety of sources, including anthologies, periodicals, three volumes of poetry assembled by the author, songs, manuscripts, fictional tales, broad sheets and
separately published pamphlets, the poems included cover the entire range of Opie's long career, starting with her earliest surviving works from the 1790s and extending through her last poems in 1850. This volume,
offering a record of textual variants as well as contextual annotations drawn from Opie's voluminous extant correspondence among other sources, extends our understanding of both women's writing and Romanticism by presenting the collected body of poetical work, ranging from the public and political to the private and whimsical, written by a woman professionally engaged in the production of literary works for more than half a century.
