The Poetess Archive Journal publishes articles relevant to eighteenth- and nineteenth-century popular poetry, especially that which has been published in the literary annuals, and to issues of digitization and the digital humanities generally as well as book history. Literary annuals were the bookish performance art of the early 19th century, profitable commercially but also designed to give access to culture, high and low, by fostering new modes of literary consumption. The screen similarly reconfigures aesthetic apprehension, in the early 21st century, and the articles in this journal explore these new modes as well.
