Abstract and Keywords

In this chapter the author explores the influence of the Oxford Movement on literature by examining a number of lesser-known works of poetry and fiction within the larger context of Victorian culture. The authors considered include Arthur Cleveland Coxe, Cecil Frances Alexander, Charlotte Yonge, Felicia Skene, John Mason Neale, and Margaret Oliphant. The religious elements of their poetry and fiction expressed a critical relationship to Victorian culture, lending their works a radical edge. The content, form, and style of these writers had a marked impact on the literature of their period, whether later writers were following them or reacting violently against them.

Keywords: Tractarian poetry, Tractarian fiction, Victorian literature, Charlotte Yonge, John Mason Neale, Felicia Skene, Cecil Frances Alexander, Margaret Oliphant
