The Female Sublime from Milton to Swinburne
By:Catherine Maxwell
Published on 2001 by Manchester University Press

This imaginative revisionist study of vision, gender, and poetry traces Milton's mark on Shelley, Tennyson, Browning, and Swinburne, showing how the lyric male poet achieves vision at the cost of symbolic blindness and feminization. Catherine Maxwell examines this concept of |bearing blindness| through a series of mythic, classical figures such as Philomela, Orpheus, and Sappho. This book offers a new interpretative framework for Victorian men's poetry, and provides detailed, extensive re-readings of many major poems.
