Abstract

This article uncovers an unexpected periodical context for Alice Meynell’s 1895 poem “The Shepherdess”, which was reprinted in The Landswoman: The Journal of the Women’s Land Army and Women’s Institutes on November 1, 1918. It argues that The Landswoman capitalized not only on the poem’s rural theme but also on its author’s cultural identity as Angel in the House.
