Victorian Poetry – Volume 2 - An Introduction.  Victoria’s reign was long and presided over the restless expansion of the British Empire and reams of creative genius. Within these volumes we can bring only a glimpse of the richness, beauty and words of their poets and their musings on this remarkable age.

Many are world renowned – Tennyson, Browning, Arnold, Kipling, Austin, Hopkins, Hardy and Swinburne. Some almost forgotten – Patmore, Newbolt, Synge.  And some barely noted – Lyall, Meynell and Merdeith.  But together they encompass a great poetical age.  In Volume 2 we collect together Thomas Hardy  to George Meredith.
