Abstract

Frances Sargent Osgood was a prolific and immensely popular poet in mid-nineteenth century America whose career reflected the cultural implications of female poets publishing during her time period. Through an exploration of the Poetess figure, this work examines the way Osgood's career and work shaped and were shaped by her relationship to her readers, critics, and the literary world at large.
