Victorian Poetry Special Issue: Victorian Periodical Poetry 

Victorian Poetry Special Issue: 
Victorian Periodical Poetry
Spring 2014

Edited by Alison Chapman and Caley Ehnes
University of Victoria, Canada

Until recently, poetry published in Victorian periodicals was simply ignored. Dismissed as “filler”, devalued as sentimental, and denigrated as popular verse, periodical poetry languished behind serial fiction and the more respectable poems published in single-authored collections and anthologies.

But the fortunes of periodical poetry have swiftly and dramatically changed. With the consolidation of the periodical as a central component of Victorian studies, renewed attention has been given to the place of the poem in the periodical. The Victorian Poetry Spring 2014 special issue will be timely in not just offering new primary and critical material on periodical poetry, but also on reflecting what periodical poetry tells us about Victorian poetry as a whole. Central questions will include: whether and to what extent Victorian periodical poetry challenges the conventional account of Victorian poetics, prosody and genre; the relation between periodical poetry and serial fiction; and what new or revised models of poetry readership are suggested by periodical poetry. Thus, the special issue will welcome articles uncovering and assessing the importance of neglected periodical poetry, but also asking probing questions about what challenges and revisions Victorian periodicals bring to the understanding of poetry.

 Submissions of essays of 20-25 manuscript pages are sought by 30 April 2013, for publication in Victorian Poetry (Spring 2014).  Early expressions of interest and proposals of topics are also welcome; please contact the editors: and More information about the special issue and Victorian Poetry can be found here.
