Religious Imaginaries · The Liturgical and Poetic Practices of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Christina Rossetti, and Adelaide Procter
By Karen Dieleman

Religious Imaginaries explores liturgical practice as formative for how three Victorian women poets imagined the world and their place in it and, consequently, for how they developed their creative and critical religious poetics.

“Though applying a theoretical framework drawn from contemporary theology, Dieleman unquestionably displays her Victorianist credentials by combining her own fresh archival research with often incisive close readings.”
