Annotaions of John Kitto's "Mary" (1845)

Our group selected John Kitto's 1845 poem "Mary" for our annotation project. The poem references many aspects of the author's life such as his disability, his fascination with the east, and his romantic approach to life. Our group chose to include annotations on linguistic changes, as well as cultural and biographic information reflected in the work. Cultural and historical annotations are meant to contextualize the poem in order to aid undergraduates in understanding and interpretations, and linguistic annotations define unusual words or sentence structures and highlight specific connotations.
