After a century of critical neglect, poet and writer Amy Levy is gaining recognition as a literary figure of stature. This definitive biography accompanied by her letters, along with the recent publication of her selected writings, provides a critical appreciation of Levys importance in her own time and in ours. As an educated Jewish woman with homoerotic desires, Levy felt the strain of combating the structures of British society in the 1880s, the decade in which she built her career and moved in Londons literary and bohemian circles. Unwilling to cut herself off from her Jewish background, she had the additional burden of attempting to bridge the gap between communities. In Amy Levy: Her Life and Letters Linda Hunt Beckman examines Levys writings and other cultural documents for insight into her emotional and intellectual life. This groundbreaking study introduces us to a woman well deserving of a place in literary and cultural history.

“This is a seminal study, offering sensitive and informed interpretation of a ‘witty, troubled, gifted, ironic, and singular young woman negotiating the troubled waters of her time.’ Beckman’s volume is recommended for upper-division undergraduates through professionals and for general readers.” "Because of Linda K. Hughes, readers can gain insight into the life and work of an accomplished poet, journalist, and editor, as well as begin to understand the pressures on women who dared (and still dare) to defy social convention. In addition Hughes includes numerous photographs of Watson and her circle, illustrations from books and journals of the time, and excerpts and commentary from her works as well as two complete poems in Appendixes. * The Latchkey: Journal of New Woman Studies *
