I was pleased to present the attached paper at the ESRC-funded Poetry Matters Seminar Series on Wednesday. I am very grateful to all of the participants who gave me such valuable feedback: Andy Goodwyn, Morag Styles, Jane Spiro, Sue Dymoke and Myra Barrs. Your comments have stayed with me and will inform my writing as I finish the full version of the paper.
