Abstract

Marion Bernstein (1846–1906) was a prolific poet active in Glasgow during the late nineteenth century. The verses she published in the Glasgow Weekly Mail were often composed in response to contemporary events reported in the paper, and many of these works reveal her concern for social, economic, and political issues. In her poems and interactions within the paper’s poetry column, she established a reputation as a champion of women’s emancipation and human rights. This essay traces the relationship between Bernstein and the Glasgow Weekly Mail in the 1870s and examines how she established her agency and identity in its pages.
