Landscapes of Eternal Return : Tennyson to Hardy, Hardback Book

Landscapes of Eternal Return : Tennyson to Hardy Hardback


This book is about the resonance and implications of the idea of `eternal recurrence', as expounded notably by Nietzsche, in relation to a range of nineteenth-century literature.

It opens up the issue of repetition and cyclical time as a key feature of both poetic and prose texts in the Victorian/Edwardian period.

The emphasis is upon the resonance of landscape as a vehicle of meaning, and upon the philosophical and aesthetic implications of the doctrine of `recurrence' for the authors whose work is examined here, ranging from Tennyson and Hallam to Swinburne and Hardy.

The book offers radically new light on a range of central nineteenth-century texts.
