(p.181) Conclusion
Edwardian Poetry

Kenneth Millard

Oxford University Press

Although nearly fifty years separate the births of Hardy and Brooke, they nevertheless share characteristics that are common to the Edwardian period. Each of the poets included here is imbued with a sense of nostalgia for an earlier time which they seek to vivify. The poets of this book are engaged in attempts to offer an expression of the definitive or quintessential England. Edwardian poetry is characterized in part by its annihilation of the traditional romantic self of poetry, and it expresses a corresponding loss of faith in writing, and occasionally in the faculty of imagination in whatever form it takes.

Keywords:   Edwardians, Victorians, Hardy, Rupert Brooke, imagination, Edwardian poetry
