The pleasures of Victorian poetry lie in its multitude of lyric and dramatic voices and, above all, in its rhythmic power and subtlety. Nowhere else can these reading pleasures be better enjoyed than in the pages of Daniel Karlin's enormous selection of poetry written and published during the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901).

Ranging from the late Romantic period to the brink of high modernism, The Penguin Book of Victorian Verse features a generous sampling of poems by:
-- William Wordsworth
-- Robert Browning
-- Alfred Lord Tennyson
-- Emily Bronte
-- Christina Rossetti
-- Gerard Manley Hopkins
-- Thomas Hardy
-- William Butler Yeats
-- and many other Victorian poets

This volume also includes such poem sequences in their entirety as Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Sonnets from the Portuguese, George Meredith's Modern Love, and Augusta Webster's Mother and Daughter. With an illuminating Introduction, cross-referencing indexes, and complete biographical and textual notes, The Penguin Book of Victorian Verse is the ideal anthology for general readers and students alike.
