Event Description:
“Gothic Stanzas: Female Confinement in the Romantic & Victorian Sonnet Tradition”

Reading important metasonnets by William Wordsworth, John Keats, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Christina Rossetti, this paper demonstrates how English sonnets of the nineteenth century were often cast in terms of female confinement, borrowing thematic clichés from sensation novels of Britain’s 1790s gothic mania. Close readings and literary analysis focus on the ways in which Romantic and Victorian poets reappropriated gothic tropes as poetic form.
