"Despine the assertions of the major Modernist poets that their poetry made a decisive break with Victorian poetic theory and practice, the two periods shared a similar understanding of their Romantic heritage and devised similar poetic strategies to transform it. Finding the Romantics emphasis on the poets's subjectivity a burden, Modernists and Victorians made an effort to objectify the presentation of emotion and mental action in their poems." from the jacket flap.
