Abstract

Guide to the Year's Work ALBERT D. PIONKE Five books are featured in the general materials section. The first three are collections with varying degrees of investment in Victorian poetry. Together, they provide a set of conceptual, tropological, and material contexts within which to interpret a wide range of canonical and lesser-known Victorian poets. The two monographs reviewed here reconnect Victorian poetry with the complex process of its translation and with one popular form of its publication. Chapter two from Bernard Lightman and Bennett Zon's coedited Evolution and Victorian Culture (Cambridge Univ. Press, 2014), John Holmes's "The Challenge of Evolution in Victorian Poetry," should be of particular interest to general materials readers. After briefly establishing a genealogy for the study of evolution in Victorian poetry that reaches back to the 1930s, the chapter proceeds in three sections: "Evolution in Victorian poetry before the Origin" finds in Arthur Hugh Clough's Ambarvalia (1849) and Alfred Tennyson's In Memoriam (1850) a preemptive articulation of "the anxieties faced by [later] poets encountering evolution through Darwin and the inferences they drew about it" (p. 42); among the later poets touched upon in "Evolution, faith and nature in Victorian poetry" are Robert Browning, Thomas
