How is our figuring out of English meter inspired via the historical past of England's experience of itself within the 19th century? no longer an old style method of poetry, yet a dynamic, contested, and inherently nontraditional box, "English meter" involved problems with own and nationwide identification, category, schooling, patriotism, militarism, and the advance of English literature as a self-discipline. The upward push and Fall of Meter tells the unknown tale of English meter from the past due eighteenth century till simply after global conflict I. Uncovering an unlimited and unexplored archive within the heritage of poetics, Meredith Martin indicates that the heritage of prosody is tied to the methods Victorian England argued approximately its nationwide id. Gerard Manley Hopkins, Coventry Patmore, and Robert Bridges used meter to barter their dating to England and the English language; George Saintsbury, Matthew Arnold, and Henry Newbolt frightened in regards to the upward push of 1 metrical version between a number of rivals. The strain to comply to a solid version, in spite of the fact that, produced reactionary misunderstandings of English meter and the tradition it stood for. This volatile courting to poetic shape motivated the prose and poems of Robert Graves, Siegfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen, W. B. Yeats, Ezra Pound, and Alice Meynell. an important intervention in literary heritage, this publication argues that our modern realizing of the increase of modernist poetic shape used to be crucially absolute to narratives of English nationwide culture.
