Modern Love and Poems of the English Roadside, with Poems and Ballads
Modern Love and Poems of the English Roadside occupies
a distinctive and somewhat notorious place within George
Meredith’s already unique body of work.
Modern Love is now best known for the emotionally intense
sonnet cycle which Meredith’s own
contemporaries dismissed as scandalously confessional and
indiscreet. While individual sonnets from the work have been
anthologized, the complete cycle is rarely included and the
original edition has not been reprinted since its first appearance
in 1862. This edition restores the original publication and
supplements it with a range of accompanying materials that will
re-introduce Meredith’s astonishing collection
of poetry to a new generation of readers.
