Summary

In Victorian Poetry: Poetry, Poetics and Politics, Isobel Armstrong rescues Victorian poetry from its longstanding sepia image as ‘a moralised form of romantic verse', and unearths its often subversive critique of nineteenth-century culture and politics. In this uniquely comprehensive and theoretically astute new edition, Armstrong provides an entirely new preface that notes the key advances in the criticism of Victorian poetry since her classic work was first published in 1993. A new chapter on the alternative Fin de Siècle sees Armstrong discuss Michael Field, Rudyard Kipling, Alice Meynell, and a selection of Hardy lyrics. The extensive bibliography acts as a key resource for student and scholars alike.
