"Valentine Cunningham's anthology presents the cornucopia of Victorian poetry as never before within a single volume. All the major poets of the period - Tennyson, Robert Browning, John Clare, Matthew Arnold, Gerard Manley Hopkins, the Brontes, the Rossettis, George Eliot, Swinburne, Housman, Hardy, Wilde, Yeats - are very generously represented, with complete texts of a wide range of key poems." "Also represented are many of the writers who are on the cusp of the central canon, some with their poetic talents already acknowledged - Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Clough, Meredith, Robert Louis Stevenson, Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll - others awaiting the wider recognition they deserve, such as Edward Carpenter, W. E. Henley, and the many women this collection makes a point of featuring: 'Michael Field', Laetitia Landon, Amy Levy, Alice Meynell, Constance Naden, Edith Nesbit and Augusta Webster" "In addition, the great conversation going on within Victorian poetry about the role of the poet and the nature of poetry and poetic work is enforced by main prose pieces from the period's critical debate, not least in the journals and reviews."--BOOK JACKET.
