(p.225) Conclusion
Victorian Poetry and the Culture of the Heart

Kirstie Blair (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The conclusion briefly surveys the later culture of the heart in the Victorian period, considering its presence in works by Christina Rossetti, Algernon Charles Swinburne, Gerard Manley Hopkins, and Walt Whitman. It argues that although the heart remained a vital image for poetry, by the late nineteenth century it had lost the resonance it possessed for earlier poets, and continued to fade in significance throughout the twentieth century.

Keywords:   Rossetti, Swinburne, Hopkins, Whitman
