The Lyric Poem and Aestheticism

Forms of Modernity

Marion Thain

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Critical Studies in Victorian Culture

  • Challenges and transforms existing narratives of the modern formation of the 'lyric' genre through engagement with a body of work that larger-scale genre histories elide
  • Offers innovative analysis of aestheticist poetry from the 1860s to the early years of the twentieth century
  • Provides three fresh theoretical frames to examine the relationship between poetry and modernity
  • Includes case studies featuring a range of literary figures such as D. G. Rossetti, Alice Meynell, Thomas Hardy, Michael Field, Arthur Symons, A. C. Swinburne and Ezra Pound
