Abstract

BENJAMIN F. FISHER / 367 After all, McLeod shows us, Bridges himself created large numbers of the indentations and stanza-leadings that we see to this day in almost all printed collections of Hopkins' poetic works. While few readers probably will dive with wild enthusiasm into all the details that McLeod provides about these poems' printed placement on pages, it is worthwhile for us to be warned (in this new and rather helpful product of deconstructionist critical strategy) that "when we go through Bridges [and his editor-descendants] hoping to arrive at the poet, Hopkins is not all there--nor are we finally alone in his presence" (p. 252). BENJAMIN F. FISHER No great amount of significant scholarship for nineties' figures has appeared this year, though what has is of superior quality. Although most of her work appeared earlier, Mathilde Blind was taken up as something of a cause during the Nineties, with writers usually associated with the era, for example, Arthur Symons, promoting her work. Thus one should not miss James Diedrick's "A Pioneering Female Aesthete: Mathilde Blind in The Dark Blue" (VPR 36, no. 3: 210-241), an overview of her contributions to a magazine often bracketed with the aesthetic
