This book is a study of nineteenth-century poems that remember, yearn for, fixate on, and forget the past. Reflecting the current critical drive to reconcile formalist and historicist approaches to literature, it uses close readings to trace the complex interactions between memory as a theme and the (often-memorable) formal traits - such as brevity, stanzaic structure, and sonic repetition - that appear in the lyrics examined. This book considers the interwoven nature of remembering and forgetting in the work of four Victorian poets. It uses this theme to shed new light on the relationship between lyric and narrative, on the connections between gender and genre, and on the way in which Victorians represented and commemorated the past.
Before recovery comes the preparation to recover. In City of Slow Dissolve, John Chavez takes readers through this journey - the 'slow dissolve', the unpacking and re-packing of self that must take place before healing can begin. Fusing language poetry, lyric, and narrative, Chavez uses syntactical play, rhythm, and repetition of key words and lines to lend immediacy to emotions and actions.
