Overview

The Realms of Verse 1830-1870: English Poetry in a Time of Nation-Building by Matthew Reynolds

Robert and Elizabeth Browning, Tennyson, and Clough lived and wrote in a time of "nation-building." The Realms of Verse brings that political and intellectual context to life, and traces its influence on the narratives, language, and form of their poetry. Theoretically astute and historically detailed, this study is the most far-reaching reassessment of Victorian poetry to have been published in recent years.
