schema:reviewBody""Victorian women poets lived in a time when religion was a vital aspect of their identities. Cynthia Scheinberg examines Anglo-Jewish (Grace Aguilar and Amy Levy) and Christian (Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Christina Rossetti) women poets, and argues that there are important connections between the discourses of nineteenth-century poetry, gender and religious identity. Further, Scheinberg argues that women poets in Victorian England of both Jewish and non-Jewish backgrounds had deep interests in the Jewish scriptures, and that they often used images and texts from Judaism in their poetry. She suggests that Jewish and Christian women used poetry as a site for creative and original theological interpretation, and that they entered into dialogue through their poetry about their own and each other's religious and artistic identities. Broadly interdisciplinary, the book's methodology calls on studies in poetics, religious studies, feminist literary criticism, and little-read Anglo-Jewish primary sources."--Jacket."
