Abstract

344 / VICTORIAN POETRY MARJORIE STONE Religion forms the most dominant strain in this year's work on EBB, in keeping with the general resurgence of interest in the subject reflected in Volume 31 (2003) of Victorian Literature and Culture on "Victorian Religion," and the important new collection Victorian Religious Discourse: New Directions in Criticism (2004), edited by Jude Nixon, among other publications. Material under review here includes a special issue of Studies in Browning and His Circle on EBB's religious and philosophical thought, as well as new essays on the importance of EBB's Congregationalist and Swedenborgian contexts (one in Nixon's collection). Other studies focus on the political and aesthetic philosophies expressed in her unjustly neglected juvenilia, her response to French literature (especially George Sand), and the metaphors of the gendered body pervading Victorian criticism of her poetry. Volume 26 of SBHC (which I read in proofs kindly furnished by the Armstrong Browning Library) brings together eight essays on EBB first presented as papers at an "International Symposium on the Philosophical and Religious Thought of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning" at the Armstrong Browning Library, Baylor University, Texas, in October 2001.
