Victorian Poetry and Modern Life : The Unpoetical Age Hardback
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Nineteenth-Century Writing and Culture series
Faced with the chaos and banality of modern, everyday life, a number of Victorian poets sought innovative ways of writing about the unpoetic present in their verse.
Their varied efforts are recognisably akin, not least in their development of mixed verse-forms that fused novel and epic to create something equal to the miscellaneousness of the age.
