I suspect that the ideal way of developing one's field exam list for one's doctoral comprehensive exams does not include the following Google search:
Who are the best female British poets
Nonetheless, I sadly just conducted said search.
And I'm sure you can guess how much success I had since I am busy typing this post instead of adding, well, the works of the best female British poets to my list of post-1945 British texts.
You see, it's only that I don't really read poetry. Or British writing in general. So you can see why female British poets are giving me a bit of a problem here.
I just hope that come dissertation-writing time, I've sharpened my methodological practices. Though on the up-side, it would be hard for them to get much worse. (That's not super comforting.)
