Amy Levy · Her Life and Letters
By Linda Hunt Beckman

After a century of critical neglect, poet and writer Amy Levy is gaining recognition as a literary figure of stature. This definitive biography accompanied by her letters, along with the recent publication of her selected writings, provides a critical appreciation of Levy's importance in her own time and in ours.

“This is a seminal study, offering sensitive and informed interpretation of a ‘witty, troubled, gifted, ironic, and singular young woman negotiating the troubled waters of her time.’ Beckman’s volume is recommended for upper-division undergraduates through professionals and for general readers.”
