Congratulations to Jill Ehnenn!

Jill's invited essay, "Sexuality" has just been published in the newly released Cambridge Companion to Victorian Women's Poetry, which may be of interest to those of you teaching surveys, seminars, or grad classes on 19th-century topics or poetry more broadly. 

The publisher's description: In this Companion, leading scholars deliver accessible and cutting-edge essays that situate Victorian women's poetry in its relation to print culture, diverse identities, and aesthetic and cultural issues. The book is inclusive in method, demonstrating, for example, the benefits of both distant and close reading approaches, and featuring major figures like Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Christina Rossetti and over one hundred poets altogether. Thematically arranged, the chapters deliver studies on a comprehensive array of subjects that address women's poetry in its manifold forms and investigate its global context. Essays shed light on children's poetry, domestic relations, sexualities, and stylistic artifice and conclude by looking at how women poets placed their published poems and how we can 'place' Victorian women poets today. 

Please congratulate her when you see her!
