Such actions ‘most powerfully appeal to the great primary human affections: to those elementary feelings which subsist permanently in the race, and which are independent of time’ (1965: 593–4). Such an art escapes the predicament of the modern: the alienation of artists from his society, their Introduction: Victorian Poetics 7 conﬁnement to subjectivity as the material of art, and their location in a mundane contemporaneity. Arnold advocates a style appropriate to poetry as he conceived it: the grand style, in which beauty or elaborateness of expression does not offer itself as an independent pleasure, distracting the reader from the action.

Aesthetic poetry provides a distillation of a transﬁgured world, an artiﬁcial or earthly paradise.
