Abstract

This article considers the way in which women's writing in English in the nineteenth century engaged with Greek literature and drama. Discussing the writing of Augusta Webster and Amy Levy, it explores the relationship between translation and new work and suggests that focus on particular Greek texts and figures was not only significant for other aspects of their lives and work but also part of a broader process of iconic shift and cultural critique.
