Writer

Barbara Wiedemann is an American poet.

Wiedemann, who received her Ph.D. from the University of South Florida, has published one book of poetry, besides a number of poems in literary journals. She is the author of one monograph and co-editor of two critical studies. She was formerly a professor of English literature at Auburn Montgomery.

Poetry

Wiedemann has published poems in a number of journals, including Kaleidoscope, Kerf, Poetry Motel, and Acorn. A chapbook of her poetry entitled Half-Life of Love was published by Finishing Line Press. Another chapbook, Death of a Pope and Other Poems, is to be published in the fall of 2012.[1]

Critical studies

Wiedemann has authored a critical study, Josephine Herbst’s Short Fiction: A Window to Her Life and Times, on the work of Josephine Herbst, the radical American writer, and is the co-editor of two books, Short Fiction: A Critical Companion and "My Name Was Martha": A Renaissance Woman's Autobiographical Poem. The latter is the first edition of a 1632 autobiographical poem, 110 lines long, by a woman called Martha Moulsworth—one of the first such poems in English, which was included in the seventh edition of the Norton Anthology of English Literature.[2]

Her essay on Hélène Cixous and Marguerite Duras, "The Search for an Authentic Voice: Hélène Cixous and Marguerite Duras," was reprinted in the collection Marguerite Duras Lives On.[3]
