Abstract

Guide to the Year's Work1 ALBERT D. PIONKE Five books are featured in the general materials section. Three monographs reconnect Victorian lyric practices with various forms of musical thinking, the Scottish reception of MacPherson's Ossian poems with environmental and psychic history, and long narrative poetry with the epic representation of everyday life, respectively. Also featured are a critical reader made up largely of reprinted pieces aimed at the student market and a four-volume encyclopedia of Victorian literature sure to be of use to general materials readers of all levels. Working in opposition to the dominant nineteenth-century and subsequent critical assumption "that lyric poetry represents a speaking voice with all its attendant psychological complexities" (p. 34), Elizabeth Helsinger's Poetry and the Thought of Song in Nineteenth-Century Britain (Univ. of Virginia Press, 2015) attunes itself to a range of largely canonical nineteenth-century poets who "sought to align poetic with musical and cognitive motion" (p. 13). Not "a full history of verse-thinking through meter or melodies in the various subgenres of nineteenth-century poetic song," the book is, rather, "explorative of the large field of lyric genres and verse practices modeled on song in the nineteenth century, examining poets' fictions about song
