This electronic collection of over sixty volumes of lyric poetry by Scottish women, written between 1789 and 1832, endeavors to fill a gap in our knowledge of and access to this large and comprehensive body of work. Conventional anthologies and histories of Scottish literature have been composed largely of the works of male authors. Seldom have any but the most specialized twentieth-century literary histories of the period paid serious attention to the dozens of Scottish women poets who were active at the time and whose work and influence were in many instances familiar and admired by their male contemporaries.
