About

Kathryn Freeman, whose fields are British Romanticism, Orientalism, Blake studies, and women’s literature, received her PhD from Yale in 1990.  She is the author of Blake’s Nostos: Fragmentation and Nondualism in The Four Zoas (SUNY 1997); Women Writers and the Asiatic Society of Bengal, 1785-1835: Re-Orienting Anglo-India (Ashgate 2014); related articles on Sydney Owenson’s The Missionary; on Phebe Gibbes’ Hartly House, Calcutta; and on the translations of William Jones and Charles Wilkins; and A Guide to William Blake (Routledge 2017). Rethinking the Romantic Era: Androgynous Subjectivity and the Re-creative in the Writings of Mary Robinson, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Mary Shelley studies literary influence across gender and generation (Bloomsbury 2021). Her current book project, Nationalism, Gender, and Subjectivity in the Novels of Phebe Gibbes, charts the career of this overlooked writer whose incisive fiction gestures ahead to Wollstonecraft and Austen in its social commentary and subversion of the sentimental novel.
