The Victorian Poet and His Readers: The Strange Case of Tennyson's "The Princess" Hardback

Part of the Encounters. The Warsaw Studies in English Language Culture, Literature, and Visual Arts series

Description

The author follows the interpretative pursuits of nineteenth-century readers and analyses Tennyson's The Princess through the prism of their critical ideas.

She analyses Tennyson's reconsideration of gender binaries and women's rights as well as the poem's reliance on the aesthetics of the grotesque and its metapoetic games.

The book rests on the premise that literature cannot be studied in isolation from its immediate socio-historical context.

As such, poetry becomes an outcome of social and cultural negotiations, moving "in a strange diagonal" between the author and his public.
