This book provides an introduction to the issues that absorbed the attention of poets from the 1830s to the 1890s. The thirteen chapters offer fresh insights into the works of well-known figures such as Robert Browning, and Alfred Tennyson and the writings of women poets--such as Amy Levy and Augusta Webster--whose contribution to Victorian culture has only recently been acknowledged by scholars. The volume, which will be of interest to scholars and students alike, features a detailed chronology of the Victorian period and a guide to further reading.

Industry Reviews

"[This book] offers a useful overview not only of the more familiar poets of the era, and their social, political, and economic context, but also of the critical heritage that has contributed to recent approaches to the subject... The editor has ensured that a variety of approaches is represented." Nineteenth Century Contexts
