A Companion to Victorian Poetry by Ciaran Cronin
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This Companion brings together specially commissioned essays by distinguished international scholars that reflect both the diversity of Victorian poetry and the variety of critical approaches that illuminate it.The volume opens with an introductory essay on Victorian poetics by Carol Christ that offers a commanding overview of the whole period. The remaining contributions are organized into three parts: the first surveys the variety of schools and styles in Victorian poetry: in the second, the focus shifts from the form and content of the poetry to the means of its production and distribution: the final part positions Victorian verse in its contexts and explores its interactions with dominant cultural discourses. The Companion as a whole does more than map the existing state of scholarship in the field: it sets out an agenda for future research.
