This book has explored the relationship between crisis and modernity in nineteenth-century England. It has assessed the impact of religion in crisis upon poetry and the poetic persona by considering the work of Alfred Tennyson, James Thomson, and Gerard Manley Hopkins. Identity, as represented in the texts analysed by the book, is clearly in a state of flux, crisis, and transition in all sorts of different configurations. The Industrial Revolution, for example, produced a disorientating effect upon identity in modernity. This book closes with a discussion of the vampire and T. S. Eliot's poem The Waste Land.
