Ann Yearsley and Thomas Beddoes: Friendship and Pneumatic Medicine in Hotwells

Essays in Romanticism (2019), 26, (2), 159–175.

Abstract

Among Bristol’s writers, Ann Yearsley displays a remarkable interface between poetry and science. This paper will introduce a critical element to Yearsley’s poetry that has previously been discussed mostly in its biographical context. By examining the role of the sympathetic imagination in scientific and medical discourse of the period, this paper will uncover the potentially broader contexts in which scholarship might understand Yearsley and her work.
