Summary

Victorian Poetry – Volume 2 - An Introduction. Victoria’s reign was long and presided over the restless expansion of the British Empire and reams of creative genius. Within these volumes we can bring only a glimpse of the richness, beauty and words of their poets and their musings on this remarkable age. Many are world renowned – Tennyson, Browning, Arnold, Kipling, Austin, Hopkins, Hardy and Swinburne. Some almost forgotten – Patmore, Newbolt, Synge. And some barely noted – Lyall, Meynell and Merdeith. But together they encompass a great poetical age. In Volume 2 we collect together Thomas Hardy to George Meredith. Among our readers are Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe.
