Victorian Poetry and the Poetics of the Literary Periodical, Paperback / softback Book

Victorian Poetry and the Poetics of the Literary Periodical Paperback / softback

Part of the Edinburgh Critical Studies in Victorian Culture series

Description

Victorian Poetry and the Poetics of the Literary Periodical offers an alternative history of Victorian poetry that asserts the fundamental importance of popular periodical poetry to our understanding of Victorian poetics.

Reading the poetry of un-anthologised, unnamed and underappreciated poets alongside that of Tennyson, Barrett Browning and Rossetti, Ehnes argues that the popular poet is not a marginal poet: he, and especially she, occupies the centre of literary culture, producing the poetry consumed by the majority of Victorian readers.
