Transatlantic Tractarians: Victorian Poetry and the Church of England in America


This article focuses on transatlantic Tractarian poetics, discussing the poetic exchanges and connections between British Tractarian poets and American Tractarians and the implications that these had for broader questions of religious and national identity. It considers poetry published by leading British Tractarians that dealt with the Church in America, and then briefly assesses poetic responses by leading members of the Episcopal Church in America, including George Washington Doane’s American edition of The Christian Year (1834) and Arthur Cleveland Coxe’s Christian Ballads (1840).
