Description
 
Includes poems by five major British poets: Alfred, 1st Baron Tennyson, Robert Browning, Matthew Arnold, Arthur Hugh Clough & Algernon Charles Swinburne. Nourished by the macabre, the exotic & the aberrant, their art was practiced on what Browning called ‘the dangerous edge of things’. Landscape & introspection characterize Tennyson. Browning’s ‘morbid anatomy’ analyzes the saints & psychopaths, loves & traitors of his dramatic doubt. Clough grows brittle & sardonic in his loss, while Swinburne marks the moral & poetic revolution of a new generation. These philosophical attitudes are embodied in some of the most memorable & readable verse in the English language. Includes chronology of the poets’ lives & times. Compact format.
