British Poetry And Prose 1870 1905

by Ian Fletcher, British Poetry And Prose 1870 1905 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download British Poetry And Prose 1870 1905 books, A unique addition to the popular Oxford Authors series, this anthology of works written between 1870 and 1905 bridges the Victorian and Modernist periods. It focuses on imaginative literature--poetry and short fiction--which together provide an image of an uneasy and pluralistic world, one that exerted peculiar pressures on the writer. French culture--reflected in the Naturalism of Zola and the Symbolism of Baudelaire and Mallarme--evolutionary theory, and urban alienation greatly influenced the work of the fin de siecle, and the selections included here also reveal the ideas and impulses that lay behind imperialism, socialism, and the early advance of the feminist movement. Rural culture is in decline, Romanticism has faded, and dogmatic religion is being replaced by attempts at elaborating a personal order. In addition to reflecting the social and historical context, Fletcher has also included examples of the literary innovations of the age, such as stream-of-consciousness narrative, experimentation in free verse, and the impressionistic short story. The writers represented include Samuel Butler, Swinburne, Walter Pater, Robert Bridges, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Robert Louis Stevenson, Oscar Wilde, George Gissing, A.E. Housman, Rudyard Kipling, W.B. Yeats, Aubrey Beardsley, Max Beerbohm, and many others.

British Prose Poetry

by Jane Monson, British Prose Poetry Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download British Prose Poetry books, This book is the first collection of essays on the British prose poem. With essays by leading academics, critics and practitioners, the book traces the British prose poem’s unsettled history and reception in the UK as well as its recent popularity. The essays cover the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries exploring why this form is particularly suited to the modern age and yet can still be problematic for publishers, booksellers and scholars. Refreshing perspectives are given on the Romantics, Modernists and Post-Modernists, among them Woolf, Beckett and Eliot as well as more recent poets like Seamus Heaney, Geoffrey Hill, Claudia Rankine, Jeremy Over and Vahni Capildeo. British Prose Poetry moves from a contextual overview of the genre’s early volatile and fluctuating status, through to crucial examples of prose poetry written by established Modernist, surrealist and contemporary writers. Key questions around boundaries are discussed more generally in terms of race, class and gender. The British prose poem’s international heritage, influences and influence are explored throughout as an intrinsic part of its current renaissance.
