This is all the more critical in the case of Mellor and Matlak's pioneering anthology, for by virtue of its presenting often hard-to-obtain texts, it is now (as I have seen from refereeing articles on Hemans for various journals) often cited as a basic reference.
Paula Feldman, with the sort of expertise for which she is widely admired, has edited Hemans's important 1828 volume, Records of Woman: With Others Poems—like Wu, presenting the title unit, but also all the other poems, previously published in annuals and periodicals, and collected for this volume.
Favoring novelists, these studies had several related projects: fresh discussions of the few women in the received canon; attention to lost or neglected writers; analyses of women's rhetorical strategies for representing their experience, and a comparison of these practices to the representations of women and gender dynamics by canonical male writers.
