Event description

Description

You are invited to the launch of My Ladys Soul: The Poetry of Elizabeth Siddall by Dr Serena Trowbridge, Senior Lecturer in English Literature at Birmingham City University, published by Victorian Secrets. Siddall's poems are often neglected in serous considerations of nineteenth-century women's poetry, but though there are few poems, they indicate her interest in poetry and poetics of the period, folklore and myth, and indicate a strong visual engagement with the world around her. This variorum edition is based on the manuscripts at the Ashmolean, and presents the poems as Siddall wrote them, rather than as William Michael Rossetti later edited them for publication.

The evening will include refreshments and a short talk followed by some convivial celebrating, when copies of the book will be available if you would like to purchase one.
