About this item

In Victorian Poetry: Poetry, Poetics and Politics, Isobel Armstrong rescued Victorian poetry from its longstanding sepia image as ‘a moralised form of romantic verse' and unearthed 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 students and scholars alike.

In this 2nd edition of her classic work Victorian Poetry: Poetry, Poetics and Politics, Isobel Armstrong provides:

  • a new preface that notes key directions in Victorian poetry criticism ? the turn to form, the turn to affect and the emotions, cosmopolitan and global impulses, and the attention to optical culture
  • an afterword devoted to the Fin de Siècle, discussing Michael Field and Vernon Lee, the late epics of Swinburne and Morris, and a selection of Hardy lyrics
  • a full bibliography for the last twenty years, taking into account in particular the work of Herbert Tucker, Yopie Prins, Cornelia Pearsall, Catherine Robson, Mike Sanders, Danny Karlin, Ana Vadillo and Marion Thain.
