Literary Classics: Victorian Poets
Victorian Poets
Season 2  |  Episode 6  |  STUDIO  |  August 8, 2010

After the glories of the age of the Romantic poets came yet another era that brought some of the greatest verse ever written in the English language, presented to the world when Britain was at the height of her power and influence in the world. These were the Victorian poets, as defined by the extraordinary work of Gerard Manley Hopkins, Algernon Charles Swinburne, Robert Browning and, perhaps the greatest of them all, Alfred Tennyson. In addition to the stories of the poets themselves, featured poems include Morte D'Arthur, The Charge of the Light Brigade, Home Thoughts from Abroad' and Hide Beauty.
