9780140445787: The Penguin Book of Victorian Verse (Classic, 20th-Century, Penguin)

A selection of poetry written and published during the reign of Queen Victoria, 1837-1901 

Giving pride of place to Tennyson, Robert Browning, and Christina Rossetti, this volume offers generous selections from other major poets such as Arnold, Emily Bronte, Hardy and Hopkins, and makes room for several poem-sequences in their entirety. It is wonderful, too, in its discovery and inclusion of eccentric, dissenting, un-Victorian voices, poets who squarely refuse to "represent" their period. It also includes the work of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, George Meredith, James Thomson and Augusta Webster.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

About the Author:

Daniel Karlin is Professor of English Literature at University College London. He is co-editor, with John Woolford, of The Poems of Browning and editor of the selection of Browning's poetry published in the Penguin Poetry Library.
