Abstract:

"The selected poems of Joanna Baillie offers a comprehensive selection of the major lyric poetry ranging from her songs and lyrical ballads to the dramatic monologues and realistic blank verse poems relating to her youth in the Scottish countryside as well as her life in London. This book puts Baillie's best poetry where it belongs - in the Romantic canon, demonstrably the equal of and the formative link between Robert Burns' Scottish poetry and William Wordsworth's meditations on nature. Students and general readers as well as scholars are given the opportunity of reading her many significant poems in an annotated form that makes her work more accessible."--Jacket.
