Victorian poetry : poetry, poetics, and politics by Isobel Armstrong( Book )

28 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Victorian Poetry is a major re-evaluation of the genre by one of the foremost scholars of the period. In a work that is uniquely comprehensive, Isobel Armstrong demonstrates the sophistication of Victorian poetry and rescues it from its longstanding image as a moralised form of romantic verse'. For the first time, familiar middle-class male poets, such as Tennyson, Swinburne, Hopkins and Browning, are related to female and working-class poets. For the first time also, the aesthetics and politics of Victorian poetry, both conservative and radical, are brought together in a sustained historical discussion. Armstrong's analysis is theoretically astute and challenges some of the major issues in contemporary criticism in a way that is clear and unassuming. Re-reading Victorian poetry from the midst of contemporary literary criticism, this volume constitutes a landmark in the appreciation and understanding of Victorian literature

Victorian scrutinies: reviews of poetry, 1830-1870 by Isobel Armstrong( Book )

11 editions published in 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the years covered by this volume high Victorian poetry reached it's prolific peak and stimulated a corresponding abundance of critical comment. As poets turned to new themes and new modes of presenting them, critics sought to redifine the function of poetry in their time and nowhere with greater immediacy and sense of the cultural issues at stake than in the periodicals. Two occasions when discussion was particularly lively - in relation to Tennyson's early poems and Arnold's 1853 Preface - are here used by Dr. Armstrong as focal points and with them in mind she has selected and annotated thirteen substantial reviews, principally devoted to the poetry of Tennyson, Browning, Arnold and Clough. Dr. Armstrong's own long Introduction serves equally as an indispensable preliminary guide to the fundamentals of Victorian criticism and as an authoritative summing-up of the debate on poetics conducted at large in the body of the book by the Victorians themselves. Detailed bibliographies for further reading are provided at the end of each main section

Anne Home Hunter (1741-1821) was one of the most successful song writers of the second half of the eighteenth century, most famously as the poet who wrote the lyrics of many of Haydn's songs. However, her work, which included many more serious, lyrical and romantic poems has been largely forgotten. This book contains over 200 poems, some published in her life-time under her married name 'Mrs John Hunter', some attributed only to 'a Lady', and most importantly many transcribed from her manuscripts, which are now collected for the first time
