Sound the Deep Waters: Women's Romantic Poetry in the Victorian Age
SOUND THE DEEP WATERS is a beautiful anthology of poetry and art by women from the Victorian Age. Divided into four sections: "Love's Bitter Sweets," "Moments of Delight," "Dreams and Realities," and "Last Songs," this gift-sized book contains works by poets such as Christina Rossetti, Emily Jane Bronte, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning and is illustrated with Pre-Raphaelite images. Pamela Norris has skillfully selected paintings and poems that put the reader into the heart of the Victorian world, and the result is a lovely selection that can serve as an introduction to Romantic poetry, or as a keepsake for readers who already appreciate the poetry of the era.
Pamela Norris is the author of Words of Love: Passionate Women from Heloise to Sylvia Plath; The Story of Eve; and critical editions of Thomas Hardy and Jane Austen. She taught English in Zagreb and Paris before working in publishing and television.
