Our text makes the claim that “all the Victorian poets show the strong influence of the Romantics, but they cannot sustain the confidence that the Romantics felt in the power of the imagination” (Greenblatt, 2012, p.1038). Exactly how is this observation reflected in the assigned readings from this week and last week? In other words, how do Victorian writers depart from Romanticism to promote their own philosophical tenants?Examples are given to show that the Victorians rewrite lines of the Romantics but from a “distance.” Are there any examples where the Victorian poets get closer to a subject than a Romantic writer ventured toward?Your initial post should be at least 500 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.ReferencesBruns, G. L. (1975, October). The formal nature of Victorian thinking.
