“How is Victorian verse formally innovative, not just in the invention of new metrical or stanzaic forms, but in relation to the expectations, and cognitive abilities, of readers? This is the kind of question only a finely honed literary intelligence can answer, and Monique Morgan exhibits that intelligence throughout this fresh and much-needed investigation.” —Nicholas Dames, Columbia University
“Narrative Means, Lyric Ends will be of enormous use to anyone who teaches British nineteenth-century writing. It does a particularly fine job of moving between poetry and prose, something virtually no other critic does these days. The emphasis on experimentation that Monique Morgan notes throughout all these texts is also strikingly her own critical mode, and her book is an example of how a scholar, finding unexpected connections in challenging literary works, can lift the level of the discourse in a field to new heights. This book is a model of careful and imaginative scholarship, and a pleasure to read.” —Hilary M. Schor, professor of English, University of Southern California
