Coastal Cultures of the Long Nineteenth Century

Valentine Cunningham

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter offers a wide-ranging and evocative snapshot of literary seashores in the middle of the nineteenth century. Cunningham suggestively links edgeland doings and meanings, their positives and negatives: Victorian Doverianisms in the parenthesis between suicidal Gloucester and gay Auden; what happened at Tenby; natural historical reverence beside the sea; Small Game Hunting with Hammer and Chisel; microscopes and vivaria; depredations and poeticities. Key figures discussed include Philip Henry Gosse, George Eliot, G. H. Lewes (and Peter Carey), Matthew Arnold and Alfred Lord Tennyson.

Keywords:   Matthew Arnold, W. H. Auden, George Eliot, Philip Henry Gosse, G. H. Lewes, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Beach, Victorian literature
