Part one: what seems is not always what it seems : the meaning of Christina Rossett's Monna Innominata : part two : introduction to Emily Pfeiffer's Sonnets and Songs
MetadataShow full item record
The problem researched in this project was the fading into obscurity of certain sonnet sequences by women writers. The project took on a two-tiered format. The first tier of research was an in depth study of Christina Rosetti s sonnet sequences entitled Monna innominata. By studying previous essays and research on Rosetti and analyzing the text itself, the sequence proved to be a complex and highly intellectual endeavor as opposed to a mere effusion of sentiment, as suggested by previous studies on the sequence. The second tier of research was to obtain on microfilm a copy of Emily Pfeiffer s sonnet sequence Sonnets and Songs from the UCLA Library. Biographical research of Pfeiffer was combined with critique of some of the sonnets from this sequence and other bibliographical research to form an introduction that was submitted to the publisher (Scholars Facsimiles). If accepted by the publisher, it will be the first edition of Pfeiffer s Sonnets and Songs to be published since 1888.
