The Path of Poetry: The Victorian Age

August 20, 2011

A couple of ideas ago, I introduced you to the Romantics in a poetic preamble to their mastery. So today, to make sure they don’t feel left out and to broaden your poetic horizons that bit further, I thought I’d say something about the less-known Victorian poets, who were mainly preoccupied by issues of time, space, religion and death. You can read the reviews by clicking on the links. Let me know how you get on and enjoy!

Christina Rossetti and Renewal – an exploration of the doctrine of reserve, and what it means to renewed

Elizabeth Barrett Browning – Twentyhood, The Sky – a look into what it means to be young, and the beauty of the heavens

Gerard Manley Hopkins – Manley Humility – an exploration of creation and the Creator through the eyes of a poetic genius

Matthew Arnold – The Buried Life – an introduction to identity
