This essay suggests that students can gain a deeper appreciation for how nineteenth-century women poets inscribe themselves into poetic traditions by building networks of references to one another. It highlights Landon as the pivotal poet in a chain of elegies that canonize Tighe, Hemans, Landon, Jewsbury, Barrett Browning, and Rossetti.
