Victorian Poetry: Poetry, Poetics and Politics [routledge]
Victorian Poetry: Poetry, Poetics and Politics by Isobel Armstrong
(Routledge Critical History of Victorian Poetry)
"To my mind Armstrong's book makes its contribution to the study of Victorian Literature in two key ways. I expect I will return often to her very sophistocated consideration of that old chesnut, the Victorian crystallization of lyric subjectivity in a political-poetical dramaturgy of self-spectatorship. And I find an extraordinary resonance in her formulation of the relationship of Victorian poet and modernist critic.." --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
'This book remains a most thought-provoking work.'- EM Contemporary Review
Victorian Poetry is a major re-evaluation of the genre by one of the leading scholars of the period. In a work both comprehensive and astute, the author demonstrates the sophisticaiton of Victorian poetry, rescuing it from its longstanding image as `a moralized form of romantic verse'. br br Amrstrong brings together the familiar poets of the era: Swinburne, Tennyson, Hopkins and Browning, and relates them to female and working-class poets. The aesthetics and politics of Victorian poetrym both conservative and radical, are then examined and brought together in a historical discussion that challenges some of the vital issues in contemporary criticism. br br This volume marks an acheivement in the appreciation and understanding of Victorian literature, re-reading Victorian poetry from the midst of contemporary debate.
