Description

In a work that is uniquely comprehensive and theoretically astute, Isobel Armstrong rescues Victorian poetry from its longstanding sepia image as `a moralised form of romantic verse', and unearths its often subversive critique of nineteenth-century culture and politics.

Reviews

'This is one of those works of scholarship and interpretation that, like C. S. Lewis's Allegory of Love or William Empson's Seven Types of Ambiguity, from now on students of English literature will need to turn to again and again.' - The Financial Times
