much to do with Victorian poetry

Welcome!

Digital Victorian Periodical Poetry explores the poetry most read in the long Victorian period: poems published in periodicals, magazines, and newspapers.
This site is in the early stages of development.
We are currently working on two inter-related projects: a digital index of all periodical poems in English, including translations and illustrated poetry, in full runs of a wide variety of periodicals, magazines, and newspapers, with biographical information on poets, translators, and illustrators; and a digital edition of representative periodical poetry, encoded for poetic and material features. Both the index and edition will be fully searchable, and users will be able to generate their own anthology from the edited poems.
Digital Victorian Periodical Poetry is funded by a SSHRC Insight Grant (2018-2023).
