Doubt ​and self-questioning are keynotes in the poetry of the Victorian period, a time when Britain achieved economic greatness but when spiritual faith was being eaten away by Mammon and Darwin’s theory of evolution.

Reflecting the concerns of the age, the poetry expressed an intriguing blend of confidence and insecurity, faith and uncertainty, pride and humility. Alongside the major poets Tennyson, Arnold, Browning and Hopkins – this anthology offers a rich diversity of poetry, much of it refreshingly anti-Victorian in spirit and tone, from the `nature’ poetry of William Bames and the individual voices of personal experience of Emily Brontë and Christina Rossetti, to the wonderful nonsense poems and rhymes of Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear.
