9780754654919: Seeing Suffering in Women's Literature of the Romantic Era

Arguing that vision was the dominant mode for understanding suffering in the Romantic era, Elizabeth A. Dolan shows that Mary Wollstonecraft, Charlotte Smith, and Mary Shelley experimented with aesthetic and scientific visual methods in order to expose the social structures underlying suffering. Dolan's exploration of illness, healing, and social justice in the writings of these three authors depends on two major questions: How do women writers' innovations in literary form make visible previously unseen suffering? And, how do women authors portray embodied vision to claim literary authority? Dolan's research encompasses a wide range of primary sources in science and medicine, including nosology, health travel, botany, and ophthalmology, allowing her to map the resonances and disjunctions between medical theory and literature. This in turn points towards a revisioning of enduring themes in Romanticism such as the figure of the Romantic poet, the relationship between the mind and nature, sensibility and sympathy, solitude and sociability, landscape aesthetics, the reform novel, and Romantic-era science. Dolan's book is distinguished by its deep engagement with several disciplines and genres, making it a key text for understanding Romanticism, the history of medicine, and the position of the woman writer during the period.

About the Author:

Elizabeth A. Dolan is associate professor of English at Lehigh University, USA.

Review:

'Elizabeth Dolan significantly modifies and deepens our understanding of the Romantic period, as she connects apparently disparate critical trajectories: medical understandings of the physiology of the eye, aesthetic and scientific modalities of seeing, and the discourse of suffering underlying social movements. Women writers, she argues, use this new knowledge to express their own subjectivity in innovative ways. Dolan reads Charlotte Smith, Mary Wollstonecraft, and Mary Shelley across genres and as they explode gendered constraints to visualize the suffering of neglected Others in radical and unavoidable ways.' Gina Luria Walker, New School University, USA '... Recommended.' Choice '... wide-ranging, interesting...' Keats-Shelley Journal
