Modern Love and Poems of the English Roadside, with Poems and Ballads, Hardback Book

Modern Love and Poems of the English Roadside, with Poems and Ballads Hardback

Edited by Criscillia Benford, Rebecca Mitchell


Modern Love and Poems of the English Roadside occupies a distinctive and somewhat notorious place within George Meredith's already unique body of work.

Modern Love is now best known for the emotionally intense sonnet cycle which Meredith's own contemporaries dismissed as scandalously confessional and indiscreet.

While individual sonnets from the work have been anthologized, the complete cycle is rarely included, and the original edition has not been reprinted since its first appearance in 1862.

This edition restores the original publication and supplements it with a range of accompanying materials that will reintroduce Meredith's astonishing collection of poetry to a new generation of readers.
