Wiley Blackwell Reading Poetry Series. Filter Results. This trajectory leads Cronin to identify key elements that make Victorian poetry a discrete body of work despite its immense diversity of styles: its variousness, global scope, troubled relation to its public, confrontations between past and present, and self-consciousness.
Reading Romantic Poetry
Its variousness is aptly reflected in the inclusive range of poems Cronin discusses throughout his study. The older "big three" of Victorian poetry-- Tennyson , Browning , Arnold --are often mentioned, and Cronin considers Arnold's "Lines Written in Kensington Gardens" an exemplary Victorian poem in its ambiguous positioning within yet apart from the surrounding urban scene. But he also probes the work of lesser-known poets such as Toru Dutt, whose "Casuarina Tree" is read in relation to William Wordsworth's "Yew Trees," and Charlotte Mew, whose fine poem "The Farmer's Bride" Cronin selects as a culminating representative instance of Victorian poetry.
Though his book omits detailed footnotes or sustained dialogues with critics, Cronin suggests early on that his entire commentary "unpacks" Isobel Armstrong's concept of the "double poem" in Victorian Poetry: Poetry, Poetics and Politics [Routledge, ] by embracing poems that form "the medium through which the reader is invited to gaze at the world, and a[re] themselves the objects of that gaze" Cronin Cronin tends to underplay the "politics" of Armstrong's subtitle, her questions about who is represented or excluded in a given poem and the legitimacy of grounds on which this representation is predicated.
Instead Cronin focuses on the fissuring of selves in Victorian poetry.

For if inclusiveness and recent theoretical developments inform this book, so does the older narrative of Victorian poets' alienation and self-division as in E. Johnson's The Alien Vision of Victorian Poetry  , itself heavily influenced by Modernist poetics and the Victorians' departure from the Wordsworthian egotistical sublime or Romantic faith in the organic connectedness of self and universe.
This emphasis is evident in the title of Cronin's second chapter, "The Divided Self and the Dramatic Monologue," and in his treatment of all subsequent topics: "Victorian Metrics"; "Short Poems, Long Poems and the Victorian Sonnet Sequence" which asserts that the Victorian penchant for long sequences of short lyrics sprang from the poets' sense of belatedness, uncertainty about audience, and ambivalent beliefs ; "Victorian Poetry and Translation" at once pervasive and liminal, suspended between domestic and foreign ; "Victorian Poetry and Life" highlighting the rift between the observed world and inward feeling in poems bent on close observation ; "Poetry and Religion" which notes the characteristic self-division of an "I" uncertainly poised between the individual or voice of all ; and "Conclusion: The s" when the ostensible divide between "Decadents" and "Hearties" revealed unexpected congruencies, as in W.
The topic of poetry and religion seems least congenial to Cronin. After offering an overview of Tractarian reserve in relation to John Keble 's The Christian Year and Christina Rossetti's minimalist devotional verse a mode taken further by Emily Dickinson , he turns away from theology, denominational differences, and Christian community to focus again on the alienated self.
