Both canonical and lesser-known Victorian poets are represented in this anthology, including many women poets. A headnote by the editors introduces the work of each poet, and each selection has been newly annotated.
What we have needed has been the Victorian poetic texts, by many writers--and here they are, splendidly assembled! Thank you. - William N. Rogers, San Diego State University "I'm excited about the appearance of this comprehensive anthology--especially about its inclusion of so many full-text long poems." - Peter W. Sinnema, University of Alberta "A long overdue collection that balances representative and canonical works with traditionally under-represented ones." - Barbara Gates, University of Delaware.
