(p.21) 1 Tractarian Poetry, Poetics, and the Forms of Faith
Form and Faith in Victorian Poetry and Religion

Kirstie Blair

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses how Tractarianism revived debates over formal worship, assessing the ways in which the Oxford Movement leaders, notably Newman, Keble, and Faber, saw form as a means of containing and channelling religious emotion. It assesses Keble’s widely disseminated poetic theories, particularly as displayed in his lectures as Oxford Professor or Poetry, in this light, and includes a detailed reading in the final section of the chapter of his deployment of form in The Christian Year.

Keywords:   Tractarian, Oxford Movement, Anglicanism, Newman, Keble, Christian Year, religious poetry
