This book places Victorian poetry within the context of a radical shift over the last 150 years in the key European model for human definition and experience- from the metaphor of self to the metaphor of text. In this innovative approach Warwick Slinn examines the continuities from Hegel to Derrida in order to explain the force and challenge poetry which disrupts the assumptions of idealist lyricism.
