The Penguin Book of Victorian VerseBook - 1997
The pleasures of Victorian poetry lie in its multitude of lyric and dramatic voices, and, above all, in its rhythmic power and subtlety. This selection of poetry written and published during the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901) gives pride of place to Tennyson, Robert Browing and Christina Rossetti but also offers generous selections from other major poets. It makes room for several poem-sequences in their entirety and is notable, too, for its discovery and inclusion of poets who squarely refuse to 'represent' their period.
