520 8  The Political Poetess challenges familiar accounts of the 
       figure of the nineteenth-century Poetess, offering new 
       readings of Poetess performance and criticism. In 
       performing the Poetry of Woman, the mythic Poetess has 
       long staked her claims as a creature of "separate spheres"
       --one exempt from emerging readings of nineteenth-century 
       women's political poetics. Turning such assumptions on 
       their heads, Tricia Lootens models a nineteenth-century 
       domestic or private sphere whose imaginary, apolitical 
       heart is also the heart of nation and empire, and, as 
       revisionist histories increasingly attest, is traumatized 
       and haunted by histories of slavery. Setting aside late 
       Victorian attempts to forget the unfulfilled, sentimental 
       promises of early antislavery victories, The Political 
       Poetess restores Poetess performances like Julia Ward 
       Howe's "Battle Hymn of the Republic" and Emma Lazarus's 
       "The New Colossus" to view--and with them, the vitality of
       the Black Poetess within African-American public life
