  2. Guimarães, Paula Alexandra. "‘Over my boundless waste of soul’ : echoes of the natural world, or A feminine naturphilosophie, in the poetry of Emily Brontë and Mathilde Blind". Victorian women poets were confronted with the need to reassess the Romantic concepts on Man and Nature and to ‘re-present’ the natural world as also a feminine realm or domain. Poets such as Emily Brontë and Mathilde Blind – themselves professing a sort of nature religion – have not only questioned the notion of Creation as a male myth but also challenged the prevailing anthropocentric view of li (2011): http://hdl.handle.net/1822/25054.

Shakespeare na qualidade de ‘poet-hero’ e de ‘poet of womankind’, parece ter sido indispensável para os vitorianos de um modo geral.

In comparison with the visual arts, the Brontës’ interactions with and depictions of music have received little critical attention.

In seeing melancholy as the antithesis of poetic creativity, the Victorians often broke with the traditional Renaissance and Romantic attitudes of equating melancholy moods with artistic or poetic genius. This article proposes to explore how, initially viewed as an emotional and ‘depressed’ woman poet, Elizabeth Barrett Browning tried to resist and escape the sickening disempowerment or abandonmen. http://diacritica.ilch.uminho.pt/index.php/dia/article/view/230.

  4. Guimarães, Paula Alexandra. 2017. Retrieving fin-de-siècle women poets: the transformative myths, fragments and voices of Webster, Blind and Levy. The critical recuperation of late nineteenth-century women poets, most still waiting in the margins of the literary canon, has owed significantly to the renovated interest and study of the poetical works of Augusta Webster, Mathilde Blind and Amy Levy (1860-90) by the postmodern reader. One of the reasons for this ‘salvage’ may be that they represent and embody the profound and extraordinary chang. http://hdl.handle.net/1822/47574.

  5. Guimarães, Paula Alexandra. 2017. ‘A god in an umbrella’: the world of Robert Browning seen from a lusophone perspective. Compared with other poets of the period that the Portuguese might find more palatable or ‘readable’, such as Alfred Tennyson or Matthew Arnold, who not only remained faithful in many ways to the prevailing Romantic lyric tradition but who also resonate with a quintessential ‘Englishness’, Browning emerges as a prolific ‘oddity’ or singularity that is difficult to account for.

For long considered as exclusive male preserves, war and military conflict have affected and interested a background of a singular poem by Charlotte E.

The practical and theoretical aesthetics of the late Victorian poet A. C. Swinburne, which is based on an “inner harmony”, was announced and demonstrated in his Poems and Ballads of 1866, being always associated with a set of musical ideas and analogies.

For Gregory Orr, the best way to respond to the chaotic unpredictability of our being is through the personal lyric because it “dramatizes inner and outer experience” by “clinging to embodied being”. The self in the personal lyric of the Brontës (Charlotte and Emily) is either ‘home’ or ‘away’, facing internal or external division or fracture, and in search of a prospective identity (personal and. http://hdl.handle.net/1822/25029.

In order to question and explore the complex power relations between man and woman in early Victorian England, the two eldest Brontë sisters seem to use several strategies of representation and dramatisation of political and sexual transgression in their respective poetry. While Charlotte chooses primarily a male perspective to portray female disempowerment in her poems, in Emily’s work a female p. http://hdl.handle.net/1822/25052.
