See Marlon B. Ross offers a sympathetic reading of the eighteenth-century bluestockings but is sensitive to the label's "negative consequences" in Hemans's time Gilfillan's review of Hemans in Tait's reveals how the "image" of the bluestocking is used to constrain the woman poet: She can assume "'the ludicrous image of a double-dyed Blue, in papers and morning wrapper, sweating at some stupendous treatise or tragedy from morn to noon,'" etc.
Or she can turn "'from the duties or delights of the day to the employments of the desk,'" where with "'as little pedantry.. Leighton One of Walker's models epideictic writers is the great sophist Gorgias. For the premier modern treatment of the epideictic mode in rhetoric, see Ch[aim] Perelman and L.
Epic similes carry Hemans into a Homeric territory in The Sceptic , a territory she shares with Byron who also enjoys analogies between earthquake and seaquake. With a cruel twist of fate worthy of the ancient master, she offers this analogy "as. Later, in a passage whose sudden delicacy has made it a favorite of reviewers, the "hero" forgotten by "gazing nations" may die "unnoticed" as do "thousands":.
Indeed, Anne Mellor has suggested that a broad band of Romantic-period women writers not Hemans can be distinguished from their male compeers on the basis of their rationality, with achievements like Mary Wollstonecraft's and Hannah More's in prose and didactic poetry leading the way. As capacious as is Mellor's work regarding prose and poetry, ultimately it steps away from the problem of a public poetics for Romantic-period women writers.

Another sort of scepticism—an ontological one regarding appearances and realities—is of course a long-standing topic in later Romantic studies, as in Donald H. But Hartman's emphasis on Humean crises of identity and philosophies of emotion illustrates that epistemology does not have to be "bloodless. On the latter see my "Gender and Modernity," p. On Hemans and Niebuhr, see Chorley 2: the poet is drawn to the scientific historian even while, according to Chorley, regarding him "as merely a sceptical inquirer into the traditions of antiquity; and it will be remembered with what small complacency or toleration she was prepared to regard any destroyer of the ancient legends in which her imagination took hold.
Primitive Rome was epitomized for Byron and the Hemans and Livy and Niebuhr by Numa, Rome's pacific and legendary second king, and more to the point, the religious institutions prompted by his muse-consort Egeria. Hemans London: Moxon, ; etc.
I further supplement Hemans's scepticism with paganism, her history with legend, in "Hemans, Heber, and Superstition and Revelation : Experiment and Orthodoxy at the Scene of Writing," Romantic Passions , ed. In a passage Hemans may or may not have read, Gibbon devotes his scepticism to the Holy War of the Crusades, which he sees as the natural result of institutionalized penance spilling over into nihilism: "the guilt of adultery was multiplied by daily repetition" in confession and penitence, "that of homicide might involve the massacre of a whole people" in the "more honorable mode of satisfaction" of "military service against the Saracens": The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire , ed.
