 Romantic Canons: A Bibliography
Curran explains the veritable "explosion" of publications of original poetry during the Romantic era as inspired by a new knowledge of poetic history and a desire "[t]o be 'among the English Poets'" (221): "For the first time there was an actual history not of literature per se, but of poetry in English.
In this chapter, I argue that distinctive differences between miscellaneous collections of poetry and anthologies, published in their modern form for the first time during the early 19th century, reveal that canonizing began during the romantic era, and that it is an activity structurally dependent upon the exclusion of women poets.
Although she recognizes differences between early and late eighteenth-century collections of poetry, Benedict sees anthologies and miscellanies as both "the same genre because they share means of material production, processes of compilation, audiences, and forms that define their cultural function" (4).
