A Note on Methodology

Best known as author of the epic poem 'Psyche; or, the Legend of Love', first issued privately under this title in 1805, Mary Tighe only came to public notice after her death, when 'Psyche' was republished with some of her shorter verse in 1811. In many ways, therefore, her literary 'career' was a posthumous one. The material in this bibliography has been arranged chronologically in order to tell the story of that career, and to chart the means by which Tighe's reputation has been shaped since her death. Such an arrangement also reveals the extent of scholarly interest in her work, an interest which is clearly gaining momentum.
